Tax Support for Accountants and Other Professional Advisors
Taxkey is dedicated to providing accountants, advisors and their clients with a practical tax support service. When you engage us, it is the same as having your own inhouse tax partner except without the overhead. You pay for the expertise as you need it.
Our tax support service complements rather than competes with accountancy firms. We do not deal with accounts and only provide tax compliance services when specifically requested to do so.
Taxkey’s sole aim is to support you in guiding your clients through the complexities of today’s tax system.
Taxkey’s advisory services cover all aspects of tax consultancy and planning. Specifically we have developed expertise in the following areas:
We are the Irish representative firm of the Association of International Tax Consultants (AITC). Membership of the association allows us to collaborate with tax specialists in over 60 different countries and gives us the ability to refer clients to reliable tax advisors around the world as required. Further information can be found on the AITC website.https://www.aitc-pro.com/

What Our Clients Are Saying
“We consult with Taxkey when we come across a tax issue that is outside the scope of our in-house expertise, or when we want a second opinion about a technical tax issue. We have always found Mairéad’s advice to be concise, accurate, to the point and provided in a timely and cost-efficient manner. We highly recommend Mairéad”. Declan Long, Long Accountants Limited
“I was introduced to TaxKey by my own accountant when I had a particularly difficult situation that needed immediate attention. Mairead and her team really ‘stepped up to the plate’ and not only concurred with the opinion, but offered a slightly differing view which, when taken into account reduced the final tax due even more. I am more than happy to recommend TaxKey, as I have done in the past. Her exposure and experience and value for money is second to none!” Declan Kennedy, Reiken & Associates
“Kane Bergin & Company used the services of Taxkey on a tricky tax assignment in 2019. We found Mairéad to be very professional, courteous and practical in dealing with us and our client. We would have no hesitation in using Taxkey in the future or recommending their services” Austin Bergin, Kane Bergin & Company
“Mairéad recently completed a body of work for us relating to VAT on the sale of our company’s commercial property. We found Mairéad to be attentive, practical and capable of guiding us smoothly through the various VAT related complexities of the transaction.” Martin O’Donnell, Nuhall Retail Services Limited
“Mairéad and the team at Taxkey were brilliant to engage with on our R&D Tax credit. Helped us to understand what was valid R&D expenditure and worked with us every step of the way, producing our technical case and financial accounts for our claim. Would wholeheartedly recommend.” Eamonn Costello, patientMpower
“As a Sole Practitioner the services of Taxkey have given me the exact reassurance I require in relation to any tax issue. Mairead is always quick to respond and her advice is always excellently measured with all Tax-Heads for any issue given thorough consideration.” Ger Kirwan, GK Accounts
