Business Tax Planning
Curo has a team of tax-qualified professionals who can provide advice on all areas of corporate taxation.
Here are some of the areas we can help with:
Property taxation is a complex area subject to frequent change, so it is important to get right from the start. Be it a property development, offshore property or investment, we can advise on structuring the most efficient investment vehicle in which to hold the property and the subsequent tax effects on disposal. Whether you are a UK or Non UK resident company, or an individual holding UK real estate, we have the expertise to advise on the position.
If you’re considering passing over the business to your children, there are a number of issues and hurdles to overcome in order to reduce exposure to tax. We’ll work with you to deliver a smooth handover of the business whilst protecting your wealth and achieving optimal tax efficiency.
Tax rules change frequently and can determine the most tax efficient trading vehicle to use, be it a company, partnership or other structure. We can advise on the tax position of each option whilst considering commercial factors which are likely to affect you.
As the government tries to encourage the move to electric cars, the charges on benefits in kind for the employee and employer can change significantly. We can help review the company car fleet and advise on the tax position for both parties.
Off-shore property holding companies
From April 2020, properties held via offshore structures will report under corporation tax principles instead of self-assessment. We advise various overseas clients on the relevant taxes including the ATED charge.
Firstly, when you receive correspondence from HMRC, don’t panic! We handle HMRC enquiries and correspondence all the time and will liaise with HMRC on your behalf to mitigate the tax position.
Your business plans and strategy will have associated VAT issues on which we can advise, giving you time to optimise the VAT position whilst ticking all the VAT compliance boxes with HMRC.
