Tax and Incentives

With one of the longest tax codes in the world, the need for expert UK tax advice has never been greater.

We advise on a full range of business tax issues.  Our practice covers corporate tax and structuring, capital markets, private equity, finance and real estate tax issues.  We have considerable experience advising on tax issues affecting entrepreneurs, investors and business owners (including venture capital tax schemes), as well as those arising in the context of partnerships and LLPs.

Our expertise extends to other business related tax matters, such as employee taxation, employee share schemes (both approved and unapproved) and management incentive arrangements (including in the context of carried interest structures). 

We also undertake tax litigation and disputes work.

Together with our colleagues in corporate, employment, real estate and other departments within the firm, we tailor our advice to a client’s particular needs, and look to combine excellent technical skills with a personable and user-friendly approach.

Our team advises UK and overseas clients including listed companies, mid-tier corporates, owner-managed businesses, partnerships and LLPs and individuals in a wide range of business sectors, in particular financial services, travel and leisure, publishing, technology and digital and fashion.
