How Ray is building a better working world

“An effective and efficient tax system that gives clarity to taxpayers is a vital part of any economy and a support to society generally. I focus on ensuring my clients’ issues and perspectives are raised with the Irish finance ministry and tax authority as an input to the development of clear legislation and guidance. This helps to ensure that the Irish tax system continues to be effective and efficient and also meets the highest international standards set at OECD and EU level”.
