Real estate tax

At Browne Jacobson we draw on years’ of experience and expertise to deliver a distinctly collaborative approach when supporting and advising on the tax issues arising from property transactions.

Whether advising on the SDLT and VAT issues arising within property transactions, whether on a TOGC for an investment purchase, advising on SDLT issues on holding-over or other lease re-gearing, advising on capital allowances and construction industry scheme (CIS) issues or on a property SPV sale or purchase, issues around VAT zero rating or considering input tax recovery on a residential development, our approach is distinctive and market-leading.

Our clients include investors, developers, local authorities and retailers on freehold sales and purchases, granting or renewing a lease, a development project or other property related matter.

We work collaboratively, advising with clarity and confidence. We make it our mission to find pragmatic solutions for you, whilst steering you through the complexities of the relevant tax legislation and rules, using our knowledge, empathy and know-how.
