We offer expert, tailored accountancy and taxation advice for property owners, developers, investors and property professionals. We always provide clear, simple advice and build relationships you can trust.

Whether you’re a private owner or a business, we understand the issues you face, from buy-to-let investment and stamp duty queries, to international property advice.

Working together

Our expertise spans from residential and commercial portfolios through to property investment and construction projects.

Our teams work closely together with you to provide an integrated answer for all your needs including specialist property taxation advice. Our teams are friendly, personable and easy to reach and you can be sure we can handle all the ‘technical’ elements of your requirements quickly, without any fuss.

How can we help you?

Our services for our property and construction clients include:

Tax & Legal advice for property developers: From SDLT planning in respect of site acquisition, to how much VAT you can recover from your project, we can advise.

Financial & Advisory services: From book-keeping, payroll, management accounts to annual accounts, we also provide financial forecasting services so you can prepare for future liabilities and, where possible, mitigate the tax you have to pay. We can also help you to prepare proposals for presentation to banks. 

Business planning: Business owners welcome the way we advise them on critical issues such as succession planning, employee incentives and rewards, and taking the business public.

Accounts: As well as statutory and management accounts, we offer a portfolio of advisory and planning services designed to help you prepare for future tax liabilities and mitigate them where possible. 

Inheritance tax and VAT: For property owners or shareholders in property ownership companies, we offer a range of estate planning services, and can help plan to reduce inheritance tax. We can also help you to decide whether to register for VAT and whether to ‘opt to tax’ your properties.

Business structuring: We can advise you on the best structure for your projects, whether sole trader, partnership, limited liability partnership (LLP), limited company, or special purpose vehicle (SPV). 

We can also help with shareholders’ agreements, and will advise on how to reduce your tax liability and that of the shareholders.

Benchmarking: We have a programme available where you can compare your financial performance and other key performance indicators, against the average results of your competitors, on an anonymous basis. In this way, you can either comfort yourself that you are outperforming your competition, or focus on specific areas where there is room for improvement.
