Recent rules changes have led to stamp taxes becoming increasingly complicated.
Stamp taxes apply on almost every transaction so it is something which always needs to be considered and planned for.
We can provide a comprehensive service on all aspects of Stamp Duty, Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) and the Annual Tax on Enveloped Dwellings (ATED).
With stamp duty payable on the purchase of UK shares, and SDLT applying on acquisitions of UK land interests, every business will encounter stamp taxes at some point.
SDLT rule changes, in particular, have changed drastically in the past few years, with different treatment for residential and non-residential properties, as well as a potential 15 per cent charge for acquisitions of residential properties by companies.
Whether you are looking at a corporate reorganisation, re-structuring your asset-holding with a view to an exit, renewing your occupational lease, or buying a portfolio of investment properties, we can help.
We can help guide you through the rules, advise you on any available reliefs and structure your transaction to manage your exposure.
