Our team of lawyers, chartered accountants and chartered tax advisors has the experience and specialist skills to provide clients with pragmatic and technically astute advice on UK and Scottish taxes, employee share plans and incentives.

From standalone tax planning and compliance advice, to comprehensive transactional support, we understand how tax considerations must fit within a broader commercial picture and can provide tax advice on any area of your business or personal activities.

We advise on the tax aspects of company acquisitions, disposals and reconstructions, and commercial property transactions and, particularly in recent years, we have been heavily involved in the tax optimisation of insolvency-related transactions and restructurings.

We also provide tax consultancy services to accountancy and other legal firms, particularly in relation to property tax issues.

Drawing on the extensive experience of our legal experts, we combine innovation and up-to-date technical, legal and tax advice with a practical approach to employee share plans and incentives. We work with our clients to deliver strategies and policies that aim to reward their people fairly, equitably and consistently in accordance with their value to an organisation, whilst taking advantage of any available tax efficiencies.

Our reward specialists can advise on all aspects of remuneration, incentives, share plans and tax efficient reward structures. Our clients include FTSE and AIM quoted companies, US and European multinationals, private equity houses (and their investee companies) and owner-managed businesses.
