We work closely with entrepreneurial private clients to ensure they get their new ventures off to a flying start and help put them in a great position to grow. When the time comes, we help ensure they have a pre-planned exit route that makes sense from a tax perspective.
Examples of our advice to entrepreneurs includes:
- Venture capital reliefs for raising capital including the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS);
- Considering the availability of business asset disposal relief on the sale of the business, or business assets, so that the first £1m of gains are taxed at the reduced rate of 10%;
- Implications of providing shares and share options to employees.
As well as advising shareholders and directors of companies, we provide advice to companies themselves.
