We can advise on the tax implications of a wide range of real estate transactions and related structures including joint ventures, real estate funds, corporate real estate transactions and regeneration and development projects. We regularly work with investors (UK and non-UK), occupiers and developers both in the private sector and public sector, charities and educational establishments.

Our team can help you with a variety of tax issues, including:

  • Stamp Duty
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax
