Real estate and construction

The property market has remained fairly subdued recently with the issues of supply and demand, space, investment and confidence remaining key factors.

Helping our clients with current sector issues

We work with a wide range of clients across the property and construction sector including investors, developers, construction firms, estate agents, surveyors and architects to understand and overcome the issues and challenges that they face such as:

  • Financial concerns involving the shortage of new finance, the difficulties of refinancing, restructuring and meeting the demands of loan covenant compliance
  • Issues surrounding VAT and stamp duty land tax (SDLT)
  • Lack of demand for residential units as a consequence of the dearth of mortgage finance and low level of consumer confidence

Practical and relevant solutions to help your business succeed

Through our work with clients in property and construction, Baker Tilly provides support to businesses in areas such as:

  • Debt restructuring and related specialist tax advice
  • Compliance services including external and internal audit
  • Tax planning and compliance – VAT, corporation tax, PAYE, National Insurance and SDLT
  • Corporate finance including mergers, acquisitions, disposals and introductions to suitable business partners
  • Advice on cash management, planning and mitigating tax risks
  • We also hold technical seminars throughout the year and supply e-mail technical briefings on matters of importance to the sector.

Our approach is based on integrating our areas of specialist expertise and delivering value added through our national network of local offices. We enable our clients to keep up to date with internal and external pressures that are sweeping the sector and to benefit from our experience in the sector by:

  • Providing assurance to businesses and their key stakeholders
  • Providing assurance that our clients are compliant with their debt covenants
  • Mitigating where possible the unwelcome tax consequences of restructuring arrangements
  • Keeping our clients updated on the latest developments in the sector
  • Enabling clients to keep pace with tax changes
