Gateley Capitus welcomes new head of Land Remediation Relief

Leading fiscal incentives consultancy, Gateley Capitus, has appointed Robert Jones as an associate director and new head of Land Remediation Relief (LRR).

Robert is a chartered quantity surveyor and has over 20 years of experience in the industry, specialising in capital allowances and LRR.

He will be based out of Gateley’s Birmingham office with responsibility for the service nationally and joins from The Fiscal Incentives Group where he was primarily involved in the preparation, delivery and negotiation of land remediation claims for major national housebuilders.

Commenting on his appointment, Robert said: “Gateley Capitus are market leaders in helping clients to make the most of the tax incentives available on commercial property transactions and residential developments.  LRR can play a big part in cost savings for companies who need to clean up contaminated land prior to redevelopment and can make uneconomic sites financially viable.”

“I’m excited to join the Gateley Capitus team to help clients make the most of the tax incentives available to them and to continue to grow the LRR area of the business.”

Gateley Capitus managing director, Aubrey Calderwood, said: “I’m pleased to welcome Robert to the team to grow the business further and to offer a more tailored approach to LRR.

“Having the expertise of a LRR expert can help a company maximise any claims made when developing greenfield and brownfield sites or refurbishing older properties. Gateley Legal have very strong residential and development legal teams so this additional service strengthens our offer in these areas even further. 

“The whole of the UK has a large number of contaminated greenfield and brownfield sites which could be perfect for redevelopment following decontamination works. I believe Robert is well placed to advise clients on the savings they could make by helping them identify, maximise and claim this valuable tax incentive.”

Gateley Capitus, part of the Gateley Group, are a leading fiscal incentives consultancy specialising in capital allowances on commercial property, land remediation relief and tax incentives.
