More than the law
We are a consultancy that specialises in advising clients on the tax incentives available for investment both in commercial property and research and development activities.
We regularly work with businesses to identify and maximise the tax reliefs they are entitled to claim for investment in commercial property, expenditure on the remediation of contaminated land or for research and development activities. Our team has worked with every type of investor, from offshore unit trusts and private individuals to REITs and traditional PropCos on most types of commercial property transactions.
Whether you acquire and manage commercial properties, develop new schemes or refurbish existing buildings or fit out space for occupation, capital allowances can yield traditional cash benefits in terms of tax saved on the expenditure incurred. Our team of specialist surveyors can easily identify the incentives available to you.
