Ensuring that the tax effects of your corporate finance activities are fully considered.


Whatever the commercial reason behind your requirement for corporate finance it is important to consider what the tax implications are from the point of view of the business itself as well as any individuals involved.

Tax considerations

The tax considerations may include those relating to:

  • Corporation tax

  • Capital allowances

  • Deferred tax

  • VAT

  • Stamp duty land tax


  • Income tax

  • Capital gains tax

  • SEIS/EIS tax reliefs

Making use of tax reliefs

We are well-placed to ensure that your corporate finance transaction is constructed in a tax-efficient manner as well as being able to identify where there may be an opportunity for the business to take advantage of certain reliefs after the transaction has occurred and your business strategy starts to take effect (via the Research & Development or Patent Box tax legislation, for example). 

We also recognise that the tax consequences of a business strategy should not necessarily take precedent over the commercial aims and offer balanced, clear advice to enable you to ensure that your overall objectives are met.
