Almost every aspect of your business and the activities it carries on are affected by tax rules. These include setting up the right operating structure, acquiring suitable premises, taking on employees and creating an incentive for them to help grow the business, developing your commercial operations, growing and restructuring to become more efficient or more protected, and ultimately preparing for a tax efficient sale of the business.

Tax rules are almost all based in law, mostly Acts of Parliament but also decisions of the Courts. Our Tax team is made up of experienced solicitors who specialise in interpreting and applying these rules and advising businesses on how to achieve their objectives in a tax efficient way.

Tax can be technically challenging but we are commercially minded and we are skilled in being able to advise you in a clear and straightforward way, so you can make the right decisions for your business.
