Whichever size property deal you are pursuing, we can help. Our property accountants regularly provide advice on property assets and structuring property investments from the initial stage through to completion.
We advise on the most effective ways of financing a project and which methods are tax-efficient and make the most commercial sense. We regularly assist a wide range of companies and investors, including buy-to-let investors and companies in the Private Rented Sector (PRS) and Build to Rent (BTR) sectors. For smaller investors, we regularly advise on whether it is more tax-efficient to set up a limited company to hold investment properties or to hold them personally.
VAT and property-related tax advice
Our property accountants have a wealth of experience and knowledge in all aspects of planning, maximising tax recovery and dispute resolution. Our VAT advice services have a deep understanding of property-related legislation.
Private residence relief and Lettings relief
If you let out a property that was once your only or main residence, Private Residence Relief (PRR) and Lettings Relief are available on the sale of the property. However, you should note that these have been significantly reduced since 6th April 2020. That said, both these reliefs can have a huge impact on your tax liability.
We can advise investors on a full range of funding options. We will always keep you up to date with any changes to this area of investment making sure you are aware of any legislative tax or accounting changes.
Sale and leaseback agreements
Sale and leaseback agreements mean that you can release cash that is tied up in your assets. Talking to a property accountant can help you to better understand the process and why it might be beneficial for you.
