Tax and Tax Planning
Tax affects us all. Many areas of our practice can be affected to a greater or lesser degree by tax and tax planning underpins much of our work. Whether we undertake a full estate planning exercise, reorganise a business, settle property on trust, draft a will, or simply buy or sell land, proper attention to tax makes a real difference to our clients' affairs.
At one extreme, we have the specialised skill and expertise to plan and execute schemes of succession to landed estates. Such schemes typically require teamwork with other advisers from the accountancy, land agency, and valuers' professions.
At the other extreme, the sale of a private home may require consideration of the exemption from capital gains tax for a main residence. In between, there is a wide range of tax planning work related to private individuals, family businesses and charities.
