Whether you're investing in commercial or residential property, we can make sure your investments are planned with maximum tax efficiency in mind.


Investing in bricks and mortar never goes out of fashion - and neither do taxes on property. With our help, you can be confident that your property investments are held and managed in the most tax-efficient manner for your personal circumstances.

We can advise you on:

  • whether to own property personally or within a company or a trust
  • financing your property
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT)
  • expenses you can claim for
  • tax planning for property sales
  • making best use of reliefs including Principal Private Property Relief
  • Capital Gains Tax (CGT) returns
  • 30 day CGT Report for sale of UK Residential Property
  • Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED)
  • how to “de-envelop” a property
  • tax-efficient furnished holiday lets
  • the “Non-Resident Landlord Scheme”.

If you're thinking about buying a commercial property to trade from or let out, we can also advise you on:

  • capital allowances on the integral features of the property
  • VAT implications and “opting to tax”
  • structuring transactions.

When it comes to property taxes, it's what you plan to do with your property that really counts. If you intend to sell your property for a profit, HMRC will treat this as a trading matter rather than an investment - and you'll face a completely different set of tax rules and reliefs.  Understanding the difference is critical. We can advise you on exactly that - making sure you know which tax treatment applies to your situation so that you can plan accordingly.
