Corporate tax and structuring

Tax is key to almost all commercial transactions, whether domestic or international.  It can be one of the most complex areas that impacts your business. High quality, bespoke tax advice can add real value, and a lack of early attention to tax issues can create real cost. 

Our role is to provide that high quality, tailored tax advice, guiding you through the maze of tax rules to ensure that you avoid the pitfalls and structure your transactions as tax efficiently as possible.

Our service

Our corporate tax team identifies risks and provides solutions on all aspects of taxation that affect UK and international, public and private companies and their shareholders.

We advise on the full spectrum of the corporate tax market, including:

  • corporate mergers, acquisitions and disposals
  • business acquisitions and disposals
  • venture capital funding
  • joint ventures
  • restructurings and reorganisations
  • structured financing, particularly in the media sphere
  • tax disputes
  • VAT

Our practice is truly international and we regularly advise on cross-border tax.  We have a wide network of trusted, experienced and responsive tax advisers both within Field Fisher Waterhouse and in other firms. This allows us to deliver carefully thought through international tax planning. We manage the process of obtaining international advice from start to finish. Too often international tax advice is not focused on the client’s needs and is presented in a level of technical detail that is anything but user friendly. We wouldn’t expect you to accept unclear advice from us, and so when it comes to international structuring, we ensure that the advice is presented clearly, concisely and consistently across the jurisdictions.
