What do we offer?

  • Capital Gains Tax

    Capital Gains Tax (CGT) is levied on the profits generated from the sale or disposal of an entire or partial asset. Through strategic planning and sound tax guidance, individuals and trusts can often minimise, defer, or even completely sidestep capital gains tax. Given the intricacies of capital gains tax regulations, seeking assistance from our seasoned professionals is a must. Our tax experts will evaluate your existing exposure to capital gains tax and explore potential restructuring options.


  • Research and Development

    R&D tax credits represent a strategic incentive introduced by the UK government to stimulate innovation and development within companies. The relief is based on the R&D costs that your company incurs and can be used to either reduce the amount of tax that your company pays or to receive a cash payment from HMRC. We can assist in identify any qualifying capital expenditure and advise on how to maximise your R&D claim benefit.


  • Exit and succession planning

    Our Exit Planning support starts years before you sell and sail off into the sunset. We’ll assess your tax situation and tailor an exit strategy to your business, whether you’re selling, winding down or handing over. We can help you save tax with Business Asset Disposal Relief and other credits and deductions to save every penny possible. Start thinking about your exit strategy from the beginning to ensure a smooth transition. With the right plan and preparation, you can sleep easy knowing how your exit will play out.
