We help UK companies and their shareholders to identify and manage potential corporate tax costs that can arise from business transactions.
Corporate tax is a manageable business cost. The UK has a globally competitive corporate tax system and successive UK Governments have enhanced the systems of corporate tax reliefs and exemptions to encourage businesses to grow and invest in the UK.
We help companies and their shareholders to identify potential tax costs or inefficiencies arising from business transactions and to identify corporate tax reliefs or exemptions which may be legitimately used to mitigate those costs. We also help business investors to structure investments into companies in a tax efficient manner and help companies carry out tax efficient investment activities, including investment in R&D, new Plant and Machinery or new business ventures.
Our Corporate Tax advisory team work in conjunction with clients and their professional advisers such as lawyers, property consultants and patent attorneys, to help maximise the benefit that can be obtained from a broad range of tax reliefs and exemptions such as:
- Capital allowances on property and plant
- Land remediation reliefs
- Intellectual property reliefs such as R&D Tax Reliefs and Patent Box
- Creative Sector Tax Reliefs
- Tax reliefs for acquired Intangible Assets
- Tax reliefs and exemptions on business acquisitions and disposals
