Our Story

Established in May 2016, Laura Lynch & Associates provides strategic tax and business advisory services. We are Galway-based with an international client base and international tax knowledge. We provide a full suite of tax consultancy services at a very high level with professionalism and integrity and are driven by the principle that the tax advisor and client should have regular, personal contact.

Being technically strong across all tax heads, it ensures we can assist all our clients with the tax services they specifically require, providing practical, to-the-point advice along with decision making support; often at short notice. We also work with accountancy and legal practices, who refer specialist tax queries to us. In delivering the services of Laura Lynch & Associates, we strive to provide clients with technical and professional excellence in everything we do.

Our Clients

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 have a national reach with clients based all over the country, including a significant cohort in Dublin who we visit regularly. We also have several clients based overseas, including returning Irish emigrants, so international tax planning is a key offering in our practice.

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.

In delivering these services, we strive to give clients technical and professional excellence in everything we do.

‘’Our purpose is to help our clients protect and make
important decisions about the people and
things that are important to them’’

Our Philosophy

We are driven by the principle that the tax advisor and client should have regular, personal contact, not an annual, impersonal interaction that involves sending in paperwork and receiving a completed tax return months after the year end. We believe it is so important to maintain a regular conversation with your advisor – your family or financial circumstances may be changing, a Budget may be imminent that you should plan for, new legislation, caselaw or Revenue publications may have issued, all of which may impact you, your family and your business. It is better to know about these things before they occur so that you can structure your affairs appropriately for when they do. Finding out about them 6 months later when you arrive with your tax return folder is too late!

There are many taxes – income tax, corporation tax, CGT, CAT, VAT, RCT, stamp duty, withholding tax, PAYE/PRSI. We pride ourselves on providing you with a one stop shop tax advisory service and the ability to deal with whatever tax issues you might have. We take a holistic view of our clients – the business owner, their company and their family all have concerns that need to be taken into account to give a truly practical, appropriate, commercially driven and tailored plan to suit their individual and collective circumstances.

As co-author of FINAK – Finance Act Explained 2015 – 2018 and Chair of the TALC Direct Committee, Managing Director, Laura Lynch, is at the forefront when it comes to new legislative changes and its impact for clients. Her strength is in communicating complex technical issues in an easily understood way.
