Tax advice & structuring

Whether you are buying or selling, acting as a landlord or a tenant, property transactions will give rise to tax considerations. Our well respected property tax team advises UK and non-resident investors, developers, traders, funds, and all forms of joint ventures.

Reflecting the move of many governments globally to try and balance the books, the UK has introduced a variety of new taxes, many of which target the property sector.

We provide expert advice on various taxes which affect property transactions, including stamp duty land tax, VAT, capital gains tax, income tax, corporation tax, ATED, capital allowances and now also inheritance taxes for non-resident owners of residential property.

With careful planning, it is possible to reduce the impact of these taxes and our team provide clear, pragmatic advice in plain English to help find the solutions to complicated problems.

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.

Contact a property tax lawyer

Throughout my career as a lawyer, I have found that my previous experience working as a lecturer puts me in good stead to present and explain what can be tricky subjects to my clients in a language that makes sense to them - and this is something I much enjoy doing in my day-to-day work.
