UK and international tax structuring

To ensure the lowest rates of tax and that tax reliefs are maximised, we set up collective investment schemes, including unit trust schemes for offshore property ownership, and provide structuring advice to high net worth estates and family businesses.

Funds

We have broad experience in establishing funds and advising on complex tax issues that may arise, often internationally.

Property tax

We advise on tax issues when buying, selling, or acting as a landlord or tenant, including VAT, capital gains tax, corporation tax, stamp duty land tax, capital allowances, and the construction industry scheme. We also advise on the tax efficient structuring of property ownership and sales.

Restructuring

We advise clients on hiving off group companies, splitting businesses into divisions, and putting in place holding companies. We also advise on taxes, from stamp tax to corporate tax, and the personal tax position of the individuals running the business.

Employment tax

We advise on all aspects of remuneration and share-based incentives for employees and directors. We also advise internationally mobile individuals and their employers on structuring salaries and benefits from a UK tax perspective.
