UK & EU & other indirect taxes

Our tax team advises on all areas related to UK VAT and other indirect taxes, including stamp duty, stamp duty land tax, stamp duty reserve tax, insurance premium tax, the climate change levy and landfill tax.

We have specific experience of working with clients on the application of VAT partial exemption issues, particularly as it applies to banks and insurance companies. Other areas of special focus include VAT in the property and transportation sectors, especially in regard to the capital goods scheme; and the application of the transfer of going concern provisions on the sale of the business of a company.

Members of the team have been involved in VAT litigation, and have also advised on import and customs duties.

We act for a broad range of clients, from large institutions to small and medium sized businesses; they include banks, insurance companies, shipping companies, airlines, freight forwarders and property finance businesses. We also work with the clients of our wealth planning practice to resolve tax issues related to their entrepreneurial businesses.
