Property

We act for a large number of clients in the property sector, whether investment property companies, letting agents, developers, or individuals with rental property.

Due to their complex nature, property transactions and the variety of ways in which property can be exploited needs very careful planning to maximise the return on investment.

As well as providing audit and accounting services, we advise our clients in many other areas such as tax structuring, funding, strategic decisions and how to restructure high value property portfolios.

We can help property clients in a number of areas including:

Tax

We help our clients to plan their property tax affairs carefully. Our team is able to provide expert tax planning advice as well as ensuring that our property clients meet all compliance matters with HM Revenue & Customs.  We have expertise in corporate and personal taxation, specialist VAT consultancy, PAYE and NIC. In particular, we are very experienced in mixing corporate and personal tax advice which is extremely important to our corporate property clients.

VAT

VAT is complex and can affect all areas of a property business and it is crucial to seek the right advice from an expert property accountant at the outset.

Capital allowances

These can be extremely important for property businesses and it is critical to consider each case very carefully. Our tax team includes experts in this area providing crucial advice that may considerably reduce your tax burden.

Managing the accounting function

Our team can advise on the best model for managing the finances; invaluable in order to properly control any business. We can assist with projections, book keeping, monthly accounting information, etc.

Without Alexander Sloan’s assistance and highlighting the benefits of Xero, I would have wasted so much time and effort.   What made the decision straightforward was knowing that I had the support of Alexander Sloan in the background to provide expert assistance when required.
