Real estate tax

Our experienced real estate tax team will make sure that tax does not get in the way of your commercial objectives.

Tax can make or break a deal, and it always affects the bottom line. In real estate, you need lawyers who can cut through the thorny maze of VAT and stamp duty land tax to provide clear, practical advice that works for you.

Our lawyers

We pride ourselves on being approachable, personable and making the complexities of tax as straightforward as possible.

Our experience

If you have concerns about the VAT treatment of a transaction or are looking to take advantage of a stamp duty land tax (SDLT) relief, we have the insight and experience to sort these issues out. If appropriate, we can even seek clearance from HM Revenue & Customs.

We have a specialist team of tax lawyers covering the full range of real estate tax issues, from capital allowances and corporation tax to VAT and SDLT. Many clients like to involve us right at the start of a deal, in order to get tax structuring right from the word go.

Taxpayers have differing attitudes to managing tax risk. Some prefer simplicity and certainty, while others are willing to pursue tax planning ideas, even though they may involve an element of risk. We tailor our tax services to your approach, but we also never forget the virtue of common sense, or that your tax affairs are just one part of the overall commercial picture.
