Our team of real estate taxation lawyers advise on all aspects of property investment, development, finance and funds work. Our clients include institutional clients, listed property companies, developers, local authorities and charities - both UK resident and non-UK resident. We advise on both direct and indirect taxes, including Stamp Duty Land Tax, VAT and business rates.
We advise businesses, institutions and individuals on all forms of direct and indirect property investment into UK real estate (both commercial and residential). We have significant experience advising both UK based and non-UK resident investors, from structuring the investment to its implementation.
We continue to provide tax advice to both onshore and offshore property developers of UK real estate, from multi-billion pound schemes, mixed-use schemes to high value residential developments for high net worth individuals. We have particular expertise in the Stamp Duty Land Tax and VAT issues that commonly arise.
We work closely with our Funds and Financial Services team to ensure that both UK specific and multi-jurisdictional real estate funds are structured in a manner that is suitable for investors.
We provide the tax support to our leading Real Estate Finance group, acting for both lenders and borrowers.
