About us


We are specialists in the provision of tax advice, proven through our combined years of experience in working in varying sized organisations, our external Board positions, and recognition from our peers as being tax technical leaders.

We aim to ensure that no matter who you meet in our firm, you receive the same high standards of excellence, professionalism, technical ability, service and friendliness from each one of us.

Our purpose is to help our clients protect and make important decisions about the people and things that matter most to them.

We believe that stronger relationships lead to greater understanding, confidence and success.

We take a holistic view of our clients – the business owner, their company and their family all have perspectives that need to be taken into account in giving a truly practical, appropriate, commercially driven and tailored plan to suit their individual and collective circumstances.

We aim to provide our clients with the highest standards of tax advice and client service.

We work with them at all stages of their business cycle, from commencement to international expansion and eventual retirement and succession planning, delivering a full suite of tax consultancy services with professionalism and integrity.

Our clients include owner managed businesses, high net worth individuals, international groups, business angel syndicate groups and professional firms who do not have in-house tax expertise. We are Galway-based with an international client base and global tax experience and expertise.

We provide investors with practical tax, commercial and structuring advice, along with project management and transaction support on investments. We also assist start up and expanding businesses with business planning, capital structuring, getting investor ready and tax planning.

Client testimonials

“I moved back to Ireland having lived in the UK for years. The move back, with my multiple business interests both in the UK and Ireland, had difficult tax planning to get right. Laura took the pain away with the move back, including working with international tax advisors for my offshore interests.”
Niall Crosby
“In the last ten years, HBAN has become a very complex organisation. L&J Tax has been a fabulous resource in helping HBAN scale, supporting with tax advice, EIIS advice, transaction support and back office services that has become part of the fabric of angel investing in Ireland. I would highly recommend L&J Tax to anyone considering their services.”
John Phelan
National Director, HBAN

“What separates L&J Tax from other firms we have used before is their professionalism, flexibility and ability to engage with us as a client. Response times have been excellent and all projects have been completed on time. Most importantly, even though acting as advisor, L&J Tax virtually became part of our internal management team during these transactions, building trust and challenging consensus when required.”
Ronan Murphy

“We are an early growth company. Emer has provided us with a wealth of information, put a new structure in place for the business, and has offered support as we grow and approach investors and Enterprise Ireland. I would thoroughly recommend L&J Tax to assist your company if it is growing quickly.”
