Property Tax & Capital Gains Tax

Buying a property should be an exciting time in anyone's life, which is why it is important to make sure you fully understand the various types of property tax that may come with your property.

At Alexander & Co, we want to make sure the purchase of your new home goes as smoothly as possible. That’s why our team of dedicated and professional property accountants are ready and waiting to help you in your property investment.

Capital Gains Tax

Disposal of assets can result in significant tax charges; charges which may be reduced with effective pre-transaction planning. Our tax advisers can assist you in this planning and advise you on options to minimise your exposure.

Entrepreneurs Relief (ER)

Since April 2008 ER has been available in respect of:

  • Gains made on the disposal of all or part of a business, and
  • Gains made on the disposal of shares in your family trading company if you are an employee or director of that company

The relief allows these gains to be taxed at a special rate of 10% rather than the full rate of 18% or 28%. You can claim on more than one occasion up to a cumulative maximum of (currently) £10m.

Qualification rules for ER are not simple. Contact our tax advisers, who will work with you to review your business and determine its position, enabling you to plan ahead with confidence.

Commercial Property

Moving to a new commercial property or investing in your first home for your business can come with many stresses and burdens.

Alexander & Co help you by taking away the commercial property administration, allowing you to focus solely on keeping your business up and running.

Our team of professional accountants can help you navigate the complicated world of commercial property, helping you to understand areas like:

  • Leasing or Selling Commercial Property
