Cathal Barrett

Tax Trainee (UL, Law and Accounting)

Before joining William Fry Tax Advisors I studied Law and Accounting in the University of Limerick.  

Following internships in both legal and accounting practices and having covered a number of tax modules at undergrad level I knew a career in tax was for me.  Originally I mistakenly assumed that for a career in tax my options were limited to accounting firms and I had not given much consideration to legal firms.  When I discovered that at William Fry Tax Advisors I could work as a member of Taxand’s global network of tax professionals and as part of a corporate law firm, I knew that the Traineeship here would offer a more well-rounded and worthwhile experience.

As a Tax trainee I find the work quite varied allowing me to get hands-on experience under various tax heads and to work on large projects for a wide range of domestic and multinational clients.

After a year working here I have found William Fry to be a productive and enjoyable place to work.   Everyone in the office is very approachable and encouraging so that you get every opportunity to learn and develop.  In addition the Firm has provided me with excellent one-on-one training on a wide range of topics and great support and flexibility for my studies to become an AITI Chartered Tax Advisor.  
I would highly recommend a Tax Traineeship with William Fry to anyone with an interest in tax.
