Group tax

Our tax team has one of the broadest tax practices in a City law firm covering the full range of transactional and advisory tax issues for companies and groups. We are one of the few tax practices to include specialist teams for transfer pricing and valuation work, VAT and tax disputes.

Our clients include companies and groups of all shapes and sizes whether both publicly or privately owned, domestic start-ups, owner-managed and family-owned businesses or some of the largest multinational enterprises.

We have extensive experience in group structuring, and corporate reorganisations and reconstructions where we work alongside our top-tier corporate and private client practices and leading tax advisers in other jurisdictions to provide a cohesive service for advice on and implementation of corporate structures.

Our range of services includes:

  • the design and implementation of group reorganisations, reconstructions, mergers, demergers and amalgamations;
  • advice on corporate group structures, arrangements for holding and exploiting intellectual property, the structure of treasury and financing functions;
  • group financing and borrowing; and
  • advice on group tax governance, tax strategy and disputes and relationships with tax authorities.
