Tax & Employee Incentives
Tax is a key consideration at every major stage of a company's life.
Clients may be starting off a new business venture, looking to raise finance or invest, incentivising management or other employees, dealing with the departure of key owner managers, bringing in new blood, moving on or selling up. We are expert in helping our clients to achieve their commercial objectives in a way which mitigates tax risk and maximises tax efficiency.
The key areas on which we advise include M&A, buy-outs, buybacks, reorganisations, investment, debt structuring, transfer pricing, capital gains tax planning, partnerships, VAT planning, property taxes and employee incentive arrangements.
Our clients range from individuals and entrepreneurs to global listed groups, including large media, advertising and newspaper groups, house hold brand names, venture capitalists and funds.
