Buying or selling UK real estate?


The UK real estate market remains buoyant, particularly in London, where property developers and investors from around the world still consider that the potential returns from property are higher than other investments.

Our specialist real estate tax team help property developers, property funds, property investors and construction companies manage their tax exposures, risk and compliance burdens.  We help our clients navigate a complex regime of rules restricting financing deductions, tax losses and deductions involving hybrid entities, in order to maximise their post-tax gains.

We are currently working with foreign investors who are transitioning from the non-resident landlord scheme to the corporation tax regime, to ensure tax losses and capital allowances are preserved.

We advise clients at all stages of the property life cycle, from acquisition, to retention and onward sale. We work closely with the lawyers to ensure that tax is at the forefront of any real estate transaction.

Our real estate tax services include:

  • Tax advisory;
  • Tax compliance services;
  • Stamp Duty & Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT);
  • VAT;
  • Capital Allowances;
  • Construction Industry Scheme.
