Marquess Tax is a specialist property tax advisory firm. Our focus is on providing our clients with advice aimed at reducing tax charges that can arise from a range of different transactions involving the property. Typically, property transactions can trigger both Stamp Duty Land Tax charges (on the buyer) as well as Capital Gains Tax (on the seller).
The types of scenarios that we regularly assist clients in reducing these tax charges might include:
- Purchase of property by developers/investors;
- Purchase of the main residence;
- Transfer of property or a property portfolio to a Limited Company (“incorporation”); and
- Restructuring ownership of property for estate planning/Inheritance Tax purposes.
We also provide an efficient tax reclaim service, where we can identify historic land and property transactions where our clients have overpaid Stamp Duty Land Tax. This service is provided on a no win/no fee basis.
