About us

Janine McLaughlin CTA, ATT

Director of ClearTax & Accounting Ltd.


I have worked in Tax since 1997. I trained with KPMG in Cambridge, where I qualified as a Taxation Technician and a Chartered Tax Adviser, I advised a range of clients from owner managed businesses to multi-national corporations in the East Anglian region covering diverse sectors such as biotech, IT, education, manufacturing, retail, and agriculture.

I then spent the next 9 years working for an international consultancy group as their corporate tax specialist. My responsibilities included UK corporate tax returns and UK tax planning, R&D tax credit claims, group relief claims, group transfer pricing, group VAT compliance and planning, HMRC enquiries and international tax planning.

In 2009 I set up ClearTax to provide tax and accounting solutions to individuals and small businesses for a fair and clear fixed price.

My aim is to provide a quality, efficient and friendly service that will help your business to grow as well as to maximise your bottom line!
