THE TAXWISE STORY

image7

The Taxwise story began in 2010 when three forward-thinking tax professionals, and entrepreneurs took on the challenge of bridging the gap between the application of tax laws, and the ignorance of its users. These former employees of Tax Administration Jamaica, combined their years of training, experience, extensive knowledge, and networking capabilities to deliver solutions for their clients. 


The expertise and know-how brought by the founders of the company, to the tax process, is what distinguishes Taxwise from its competitors. The company has the ability to quickly and effectively assess each client’s problems, and successfully apply the appropriate solution, to the satisfaction of both our clients and the tax authorities. Over the past eight (8) years, our company has saved our clients over $250 million in tax liability. 


Our entire team is deliberately innovative, relentlessly agile, and committed to putting our clients first, as we deliver the best possible outcome to every challenging tax issue. We stay informed, and keep our clients updated on all the changes in the tax rules, that may affect their business, and provide strategic advice to ensure that tax liability is minimized. Our approach has led to many satisfied clients, exponential growth in our business and an expansion of our team of professionals, since we started.
