Property Transactions

All property transactions have to be considered from the perspective of both the vendor and the purchaser, with a variety of different taxes under consideration.

It is often necessary for the purchaser to understand the reasons why a vendor is proposing to structure a property transaction in a certain way (perhaps to ensure profits are taxed at a lower rate), and in a similar vein, it can be very helpful for a vendor to understand the business of the purchaser, and how this can impact on their preferred structure (such as a VAT-exempt business and identifying how the VAT cost can be minimised).

Our tax team work with our clients and their professional advisors to ensure that their property investment or development is structured in the most tax-efficient manner.
