Tax law is a major consideration in any area of commercial activity. Getting the right tax result is vital, for example, in structuring corporate disposals and acquisitions, incentivising key employees and management, or managing property taxes efficiently.
Our expert team provides commercially-focused, technically-sound tax advice and first-rate legal drafting on tax-related matters. We are equally at home in advising on a one-off SDLT query, working with you on tax issues through the process of a corporate sale or advising on tax matters in setting up an operating company for a local authority.
We act for a broad range of clients in the public and private sectors, including individuals, owner-managed businesses, listed companies, international groups, schools, local authorities and other public bodies.
Corporate tax advice – we advise on structuring and transactional tax advice in corporate acquisitions and mergers on UK and cross-border deals. We also advise on vendor tax planning on UK scheme disposals in the SME sector and UK and non-UK clients on tax issues on cross-border corporate acquisitions and disposals.
Property tax advice – we advise on structuring and transactional tax on a range of property transactions for retailers, investors and developers, ranging from day-to-day property tax advice (eg freehold disposals, leases, lease renewals etc), to more bespoke tax advice on particular transactions, especially in relation to VAT and SDLT issues.
Local authorities – we advise local authorities on tax issues, including on public - private joint ventures, and on local authorities establishing corporate vehicles for outsourced service provision and ‘mutuals’.
Education – we advise academies and other education bodies, mainly on VAT issues, both in initial conversion and on ongoing matters including property and construction aspects and VAT recovery matters.
Employee and management share incentives – we provide tax advice and legal drafting and have a depth of experience on Enterprise Management Incentive schemes, including bespoke and complex legal drafting around performance conditions and vesting arrangements. We also advise on Company Share Option Plans and unapproved share option schemes.
