Pauline Hudd – an experienced stamp taxes specialist –joined Wilder Coe LTD in March 2016, and we are delighted to announce her new position as a partner in the firm.
Pauline has extensive experience in all types of transactions, gained through her years in practice at KPMG, and previously in her role as Assistant Controller at HMRC Stamp Office. She advises on property purchases and disposals, mergers and acquisitions, international company reorganisations, as well as re-financing projects and unwinding offshore holding structures to extract property. Given the complexity of the legislation, she can help guide clients and ensure they take advantage of available reliefs and meet their compliance obligations.
With stamp taxes in UK payable on any transfer of UK shares and all transactions in UK land, and with the rules becoming increasingly complex, there is renewed focus on this area of tax. In addition the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED) means that many overseas companies face an annual charge on their UK residential property holdings.
Founding Partner Robert Coe commented: ‘In view of the recent changes in Stamp Taxes they have now become a major consideration in property transactions and Pauline brings a wealth of experience in this area to Wilder Coe Limited’
Pauline Hudd said “I have been delighted to take on the challenge of developing the Stamp Taxes practice since joining Wilder Coe in March, and I am thrilled to have been invited to become a partner”
