Tax is an essential focal point for businesses. It has the potential to impact all aspects of day-to-day operations, from meeting compliance obligations to understanding the issues that arise when buying or selling a company, or undertaking bespoke planning for a complex capital reorganisation.

We provide practical, cost-effective tax advice that’s tailored to the exact needs of your business, delivering valuable savings to you wherever possible. You will benefit from a wealth of expertise in strategic planning, since our team’s knowledge spans a broad range of business sectors. There is a particular focus on “bridging the gap” between the ever-increasing complexity of tax laws around the world and your particular commercial needs.

We can advise you on the corporate tax and employment income tax aspects of a wide variety of matters, including domestic and cross-border M&A and structuring and restructuring, real estate, private equity and venture capital, investment funds, finance (including Islamic finance, asset finance and other niche areas), intellectual property, insolvency, and tax disputes.

Areas of expertise

  • Private client tax planning

    We have a large number of specialists in all aspects of personal taxation. Such private client tax planning includes all aspects of inheritance tax, capital gains tax, income tax, real estate transfer tax and, in the UK, stamp duty land tax. We can also advise personal and business clients on the use of double tax treaties. We add value to our clients’ activities, advising on effective tax planning from hostile and contentious claimants, and from problems arising out of succession issues.

  • Real estate & construction taxation

    We have a very close working relationship with our real estate, planning and construction teams to advise on the tax implications of transactions and arrangements, and structures to maximise efficiency in the real estate sector. We are particularly noted for our work in inward investment into UK real estate from abroad, both in relation to tax efficient planning of their acquisitions and disposals, and the ongoing UK tax implications of investments. We are also noted for our work in the hotels and leisure industry. We advise on both the direct and indirect tax treatment of transactions, and are experienced in structuring to mitigate stamp duty land tax and VAT, through the use of alternative vehicles (such as offshore limited partnerships and unit trusts) where advantageous. We also advise on tax issues arising in connection with capital expenditure, including maximising the availability of capital allowances and addressing the construction industry scheme where relevant. We will support clients on land transfer and registration tax planning (including implementation of mitigation structures).
