Property Taxation

Tax rules for property landlords have changed radically in recent years and are expected to significantly raise the tax burden for property owners.  Our property tax team can guide you through the impact of the new rules and identify valuable planning possibilities for you.

 

Many individuals have estates which, on death, will have significant exposure to inheritance tax at 40%.  IHT can place a huge burden on families and often requires the forced sale of family assets.  However, by use of careful planning, IHT can be reduced substantially and our estate planning team can guide you through this process with a mix of expertise and empathy.

Tax Efficient Investing

Many higher rate tax payers opt to invest in tax efficient structures such as pensions, Enterprise Investment Schemes, Venture Capital Trusts or ISA’s, amongst others.  Whilst EQ Taxation do not provide investment advice, we are able to advise on the tax consequences of your investment choice.

EQ’s capital taxes team have delivered huge tax savings to its clients over many years.  Capital gains tax offers numerous mitigation and deferral opportunities and proactive planning in this area can produce highly favourable tax outcomes.  Our experts’ role is to ensure that our business owners and investors maximise their after tax position.

Value Extraction

Many clients run successful businesses but perhaps do not extract sufficient value annually to enjoy rewards commensurate with the business success.  Our employer/employee team can allow you to enjoy the success of your business without penal tax charges.

Many businesses fail to claim for the obvious relief and allowances.  EQ’s role is to ensure that you claim all the reliefs and allowances to which you are entitled, whether that be use of spouses, business expense claims or many other items.
