Hello! This is one part of my story - Lets continue it together.
The first moment I decided to create this tax community and develop content for The Tax Bible was on an eight hour flight from London Heathrow to Raleigh, North Carolina. The purpose of which was to meet the international tax team of a world leading technology company. It was the first time I reflected on my successes in life to date. As a just turned 27 year old, I was a Chartered Accountant, a Chartered Tax Advisor, drafted and submitted consultation documents to the Irish Department of Finance on tax policy adoption regarding EU Directives - all achieved before I began writing this web-page, sitting in seat 27A, on my way to Raleigh as the EMEA Direct Tax Lead for a multi-billion dollar company. Life isn’t too bad.
Taxation has existed since around 3000–2800 BC. Now more than ever, it is crucial that everyone has an understanding of the workings of tax systems in which you live. This website community is an exploration of the changing international tax landscape as well as being an aid to "Average Joe" and students of tax internationally. If you work in tax, a student of tax or indeed want to learn more, this website will help you understand taxation like never before.
Not only have I worked with incredible people and companies to date, the inspiration for me to write comes from my own siblings. Every one of my siblings have achieved enormous feats in their careers already. Be it in the legal, finance, historical or medical sectors, they are all excelling and inspire me every day to achieve more. My twin brother alone had a PhD in History and lectured on national television by the age of 26...needless to say I’ve a tough act to follow!
Finally, I impart two guidelines that I live my life by:
For Tax: Knowledge is Power.
For Life: See above.
Learn. Grow. Succeed.
