Taxation Services

Our philosophy is to work with you, our client, to resolve any tax issues you may currently have and ensure your on-going taxation obligations are complied with. Furthermore, we do not believe in just solving issues as they arise. We believe in pro-actively reviewing your position on an on-going basis and offering imaginative and bespoke tax advice on structuring your affairs in the most effective way.

Our core services are as follows:

  • Transaction Services
  • Property Transactions
  • VAT Advisory Services
  • International Taxation
  • Private Client
  • Tax Compliance

Transaction Services

Transactions of all sizes require the dedicated attention of experienced professionals. At Baker Tilly, we can assist you by providing advice that will allow you to navigate both the tax and commercial issues that will arise on such transactions.

Whether buying, selling or expanding your business, we can assist you in minimising your tax including:

  • Deal structuring
  • Due Diligence
  • Advising the Purchaser/Seller
  • Restructuring

We can also review your existing structure to ensure that it is fit for purpose including:

  • Family partitions
  • Succession planning
  • Amalgamation or division of trades
  • Dispute between shareholders, either by consent or Court order
  • Tidy up of corporate group
  • Consolidation of an individual’s corporate holding

Property Transactions

We have significant experience in advising clients on the tax implications relevant to property transactions and property development.

Particular care is required when deciding on the most suitable structure to be put in place for the holding of property which may include:

  • Co-ownerships or partnerships
  • Non-resident structures
  • QIAIFs
  • Corporates

Other matters to be considered in relation to such transactions include tax efficient financing, VAT treatment and potential exposure to RCT.

VAT is one area which can be particularly challenging when it comes to real estate transactions as VAT on property is a complex area of VAT law. Property transactions can have potentially costly VAT consequences for both purchasers and vendors. It is therefore of major importance that all VAT aspects of a transaction are considered from the outset and all related obligations met. It follows that professional advice should be sought before entering into any construction or property transaction.

With our experience we can provide you with practical advice on bespoke structures that will best suit your needs and requirements.

VAT Advisory Services

VAT can be one of the more complex areas of tax. Combining our VAT experience with our industry knowledge, our Baker Tilly VAT team can help businesses and other organisations to address any VAT challenges. Our VAT experts have significant expertise in advising on ways to minimise irrecoverable VAT costs and maximise cashflows in an easily understood manner.

Our VAT services include:

  • Transactional consulting
  • Property transactions
  • VAT review/health check/pre-audit check
  • VAT training
  • Dispute resolution support
