Property development and investment

Our team has extensive experience in advising clients with buy to let property portfolios,  those are in the business of property development or those who simply wish to structure their properties with succession planning in mind.

 

Property development

We work with our property developer clients on a range of projects including single dwellings to large multipurpose commercial properties, providing specifically tailored advice to reflect the unique aspects of each project. All our clients have different needs and objectives, depending on whether it will be a single project for sale and exit, one of several projects with the proceeds to be reinvested or a joint venture.

We work closely with clients to ensure they have considered the relevance of the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings, Stamp Duty Land Tax, Capital Gains Tax (both resident and non-resident CGT) and Inheritance Tax.

Property investment

We provide tax advice to UK and international property investors, this includes advice on the non-resident landlord scheme for taxation of rental profits under both the corporation tax and income tax regimes. This can be particularly complicated for companies that are non-resident landlords as there is also an obligation to file UK accounts.

Apart from the ongoing tax issues with rental profits a key issue can be the longer term plans for the assets and their status for inheritance tax. We work with our clients to develop long term strategies for succession planning which can include family partnerships and utilising share ownership to help transition assets to the next generation.

Overseas investors are often concerned about unnecessary exposure to UK inheritance tax and we can help with this too.
