Services for professional advisers

We help hundreds of accountants and lawyers across the UK with the complex tax problems and issues faced by their clients. For small to medium sized accountancy practices we can provide niche specialist advice where it is impractical to have the full range of in-house specialisms.

If you do decide to work with us, you also decide how we support your clients.

We can deal directly with your client
We can attend joint meetings with you and your client
We can help whilst staying in the background leaving the client contact to you

Whatever you choose we will always respect your relationship with your client and will not approach them directly without your instructions.

We guarantee not to interfere with your client relationships.

Corporate Transactions & Restructuring

We work as part of the corporate finance team, advising on the complex tax aspects of buying or selling companies and businesses. We advise clients with succession planning for their company, corporate group restructurings such as demergers, business incorporations and shareholder changes. We also advise on the recent changes to loss relief and interest restrictions, transfer pricing and cross border operations.

Property

Property tax issues impact on a wide range of businesses. As a team, we advise on all property taxes including capital gains tax, income tax, inheritance tax, stamp duty land tax (SDLT), VAT, annual tax on enveloped dwellings (ATED). Common planning opportunities for clients include maximising capital allowances, cross border property ownership and the incorporation of property portfolios.
