Corporate tax

We advise businesses and individuals on the tax issues that arise in connection with corporate transactions. We identify the tax issues and then find tax-efficient and practical solutions that help our clients achieve their commercial objectives. We recognise the importance of comprehensive and cost efficient tax advice that is concise and easy to understand.

Our corporate tax team provides user friendly tax advice to national and international corporate groups, management teams, owner-managers, entrepreneurs, partnerships, joint ventures and private equity firms.

We advise clients on all UK taxes including corporation tax and indirect taxes such as VAT and stamp taxes.

We work closely with our specialist colleagues in corporate, real estate, construction, banking and insolvency and employee incentives to deliver a co-ordinated and comprehensive service from the initial structuring advice to the final execution of documents.

Particular strengths are advising on the corporate tax aspects of:

  • company/business acquisitions and disposals, including structuring and exit planning;
  • partnerships and joint venture arrangements;
  • owner-managed businesses;
  • corporate restructurings (including debt), demergers and group reorganisations;
  • employee incentive arrangements;
  • insolvency and company turnaround;
  • transactions involving public sector bodies and charities;
  • private equity funded businesses and EIS/SEIS funds; and
  • UK inward investment structures.

These strengths and our sector specialisms have allowed the team to develop niche tax experience in selected areas, such as housing and public sector, renewables, retail and leisure and banking and insolvency.

Our aim is to enable clients to make informed decisions to progress their business transactions in the most appropriate and tax efficient way, secure in the knowledge that we will manage the tax risks throughout the process.
