Justin Walton, Managing Director

Our Founder

I am Justin Walton and I set up PLS Tax Solutions in 2015.  My career has included tax leadership and management roles at KPMG, BDO (Stoy Hayward), MBS and John Laing Group plc. I also spent three years as a Non-Executive Director of a small facilities management business.

My approach is to:

Provide business owners with focus, support and direction to help with financial management and control

Help businesses address the tax aspects of business challenges, tax disputes and commercial projects by helping them solve the associated tax problems

Work alongside existing advisors and in-house teams to improve business tax efficiency 

Mentor in-house staff allowing them to develop their tax leadership roles

Put businesses and business owners in control of their tax affairs so they pay the right tax and benefit from available tax relief

I am a Chartered Tax Advisor, member of the Association of Taxation Technicians, member of The Institute of Leadership and Management and a member of Institute of Directors.  As a business owner myself, I am in a good position to empathise with my clients and be solution-focussed.

Tax Plans for Business

We use a 4-step process with our clients to help them with their tax planning.


SHOW – through a short interview process with you, we find out about your business and present you with a detailed tax diagnostic report that shows you the tax planning you should be considering for your business.


TELL – we can carefully go through the detailed report for you and working with you put in place your business tax plan for the next twelve months.  This will help you to prioritise action and your resources based on the savings that are available to you.


ACT – even though we have shown you what tax planning is available for your business and told you how to realise the savings that you are entitled to, you may still welcome additional resource to help you implement tax planning ideas, which we provide.


ADVICE – you may decide that for some tax planning ideas you need more than information to implement them and realise savings.  We have over 30 years’ experience advising on tax planning and of building a team of tax specialists that can support most businesses with their tax planning advice.
