Property Tax

The strength of our property team has resulted in an in-depth knowledge and expertise in the tax issues relevant to property business.

We act across the range of taxes to ensure that our planning is integrated across VAT, SDLT and the direct taxes affecting property transactions.

Our recent experience has included advising on structuring property investment, reducing the VAT impact on property sales and purchases, SDLT mitigation structures, the Construction Industry Scheme and remediation relief.

We act for house builders, commercial developers, landlords and tenants (both commercial and residential), local authorities and housing associations as well as project finance providers and property investors. 

We also advise on the availability of tax relief on all types of property developments and provide reports supporting claims for relief (particularly in relation to regeneration projects).

Our team advises clients on how to structure investments and portfolios to make the most of tax relief and how to manage your holdings so as to minimise their tax profiles. 

We have a strong reputation for acting as an independent ‘sanity check’ on marketed SDLT mitigation schemes.
