Our well respected property tax team advises UK and non UK resident property investors, developers, traders, funds, and all forms of joint ventures on tax considerations.
Reflecting the move of many governments globally to try and balance the books, the UK has in recent years introduced a variety of relatively new taxes, many of which target the property sector.
We provide expert advice on all taxes which affect property transactions, including stamp duty land tax, VAT, capital gains tax, income tax, corporation tax, ATED, capital allowances and inheritance tax.
Our team provide clear, pragmatic advice in plain English to help find the solutions to complicated problems and to ensure property ventures are structured properly.
Tax legislation is often subject to change, seemingly, overnight. In this environment, it is good to know that your legal team are agile and responsive. We pride ourselves on being at the cutting edge in this area of law as well as clear and commercial communicators.
We are sought out as experts for tax conferences and financial publications and have excellent links with a global network of tax advisors, accountants and wealth managers both on and offshore to provide you with the best possible advice when it comes to the potential of your investment.
“Tax on property has been a favourite revenue raiser for successive governments in recent years which is challenging for taxpayers to navigate. I enjoy working with clients to develop and review their plans for property transactions in the short and long term to make sure they understand and plan for the tax framework they will be working within”
“They are a professional, switched-on outfit”
