Our tax practice has an outstanding reputation and advises on all aspects of commercial taxation across a wide range of industries. We provide advice to help you navigate your way through the complexities of tax legislation and can also give guidance on tax efficiency and provide in-house tax teams with the benefit of a second opinion on nonregular tax matters.
Tax can be a crucial element in commercial life and tax planning an essential part of every business. Tax arrangements often play an important role in the structuring of transactions both within the UK and cross-border and, where corporate tax advice is required outside the UK we liaise with our correspondent lawyers. We work closely with the corporate and real estate teams and provide advice on the full spectrum of corporate work, including the following areas:
• Asset financing
• Mergers and acquisitions
• Company reorganisations
• Establishment of operations
• Private equity transactions
• Joint ventures
• Real estate acquisitions and disposals
• Intellectual property issues
The group also has in-depth experience in VAT, insurance premium tax, stamp duty and stamp duty land tax. A further area of expertise includes employer and employee related tax issues particularly in relation to the creation and maintenance of employee incentive schemes.
We work with a wide range of clients from small entrepreneurs to large multi-national organisations. We have considerable experience of working with in-house teams and understand the need for straight-forward, commercially focused advice.
