The magnetic structure and spin wave excitations in the quasi-square-lattice layered perovskite compound La$$_5$$Mo$$_4$$O$$_{16}$$ were studied by a combination of neutron diffraction and inelastic neutron scattering techniques using polycrystalline sample. Neutron powder diffraction refinement revealed that the magnetic structure is ferrimagnetic in the $$ab$$ plane with antiferromagnetic stacking along the $$c$$-axis. The inelastic neutron scattering results display strong easy-axis magnetic anisotropy along the $$c$$-axis due to the spin-orbit interaction in Mo ions. The model Hamiltonian consisting of in-plane anisotropic exchange interactions, the interlayer exchange interaction, and easy-axis single-ion anisotropy can explain our inelastic neutron scattering data well. Strong Ising-like anisotropy and weak interlayer coupling compared with the intralayer exchange interaction can explain both the high-temperature magnetoresistance and long-time magnetization decay recently observed in La$$_5$$Mo$$_4$$O$$_{16}$$.
