In addition to our core corporate tax skills, the team has extensive experience advising on real estate tax issues, including the direct tax, SDLT, VAT and Construction Industry Scheme consequences of investments, lettings and redevelopments. We also have a well-established practice advising charities and not-for-profit bodies on the multitude of tax issues they face.
Our support to innovative and growing companies extends to the implementation of tax efficient share incentive arrangements and advising on how to attract investment through EIS and VCT tax incentives.
