In any commercial decision, tax is a key consideration. Our business tax team works closely with our transactional and commercial lawyers to ensure you have a full understanding of the tax implications of your proposed transaction, and to make recommendations to optimise your tax position.
We are able to give comprehensive and practical tax advice in relation to each stage of commercial venture’s life from structuring the initial business vehicle, dealing with subsequent fund raisings, expansion and reorganisation, and, ultimately, on realisation.
Our tax lawyers can also advise on operational tax queries as they arise in your business including on the application of employment taxes and VAT as well as on corporation tax.
We are specialists in the particular tax issues affecting the shareholders of owner-managed and family businesses. These frequently involve capital gains tax, the employment-related securities regime and the wider tax issues arising from succession planning.
Tax is a fast-changing environment and our aim is to get know your business so we can alert you to tax changes that may impact on your bottom line.
