Working closely in conjunction with our real estate team, as well as with our market-leading corporate, funds, regulatory and finance colleagues, we provide a seamless service to clients on:

  • Real estate transactions, development and lettings

Our wealth of experience means that we provide our clients, who range from institutional and private equity investors to fund managers, corporate groups and sovereigns, with the bespoke advice and expertise to meet their needs.

Put simply, we understand the issues that affect our clients and provide solutions to them. 

If you need advice on real estate taxes independently, or in relation to any deals where real estate features directly or indirectly, we can help with issues such as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), Value Added Tax (VAT), Capital Gains Tax (CGT), Corporation Tax (CT) and Income Tax (IT), Capital Allowances, Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED), Non-Resident Capital Gains Tax (NRCGT), and Structures and Buildings Allowances.

We are also able to provide a forward looking view on real estate tax, keeping you informed on developments such as the new rules on corporate interest restrictions (CIR) and hybrids, which are being extended to non-resident corporate landlords from April 2020, along with other recent changes arising as a result of the OECD base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) proposals.
