Property Tax & SDLT

If you are buying selling owning or inheriting property in the UK, there are acres of tax implications you need to be aware of. Property and construction attract a complex interaction of taxes and there is often significant value inherent from the holding or the development of property which continues to attract new taxes and tax regime changes. Additionally, SDLT legislation is increasingly complex and often misunderstood, with a number of unwelcome pitfalls which can catch out the unsuspecting.

Creative Industries Tax Relief

If you are based in the creative industries we could help you claim one of 8 corporation tax reliefs that make up the ‘Creative Industry Tax Reliefs’ scheme. These allow qualifying creative industries companies to increase their amount of allowable expenditure, and pay less corporation tax, or if the company makes a loss, to surrender this and convert some or all of it into a payable tax credit.

Companies can pay their employees using shares and the government is actively encouraging it. The rules are complex, as legislators have tried to encourage share ownership while discouraging tax avoidance. We can assist in navigating these complexities and have considerable experience in advising on and implementing a wide variety of employee share schemes.
