Tax Planning

As tax legislation becomes more complex, clients require clarity.  We aim to provide practical solutions in difficult situations and communicate the most complex advice in a clear way.

Our work includes:

  • Making, varying and winding up family settlements of all kinds: discretionary trusts, life interest trusts, protective trusts and trusts for vulnerable persons
  • UK tax advice to trustees and beneficiaries of UK-based trusts including those previously based abroad
  • Tax planning for directors and shareholders on sales, take-overs, flotations, buy-ins
  • Tax advice in relation to partnerships and family businesses
  • Tax advice in relation to divorce proceedings
  • Retirement and general tax planning advice to individuals, families and their companies
  • Structuring of the ownership of property and other investments, particularly of a complex nature, or grouped property investment by several individuals
  • Advising on Family Limited Partnerships as an alternative to trusts
  • Employee trusts
  • Pension schemes and retirement benefit arrangements (both approved and unapproved schemes)
  • Tax advice on employment matters.
