Land development

How we can help you as a land owner

Our specialist property team provides a full range of tax, VAT and advisory services that help you make the most of your assets. We have a long history of advising clients on the implications of selling land for development ranging from the sale of land adjoining homes to larger projects involving multiple landowners acting together.

How we can help

We work with you to maximise the value you achieve from your land by minimising the tax burden, ensuring the structure you adopt, is tailored to your particular circumstances.

Our team can advise on all taxes that will affect land owners, as well as providing access to a range of other finance-focused services. Ultimately, we ensure you have all that you need to make confident financial decisions for the future of you and your family.

If you are looking at the possibility of selling land which you believe has development potential, we can advise you on the following taxes that will affect the decisions you make:

  • Inheritance Tax planning including maximising any available reliefs and transferring value to future generations
  • Capital Gains Tax planning including utilising Business Asset Disposal Relief (formerly Entrepreneurs’ Relief)

It should be noted that effective tax planning is often implemented whilst an asset’s value is low. Seeking professional advice ahead of any planning permission being granted is therefore strongly recommended.
