Property Taxes

Real Estate Delivered Better


We assist sovereign wealth funds, pension funds, private equity funds, life companies, REITs, companies and individuals to create growth and add value to their real estate assets. 

In an ever changing real estate market with its evolving challenges, wise tax advice and in particular innovative structuring is crucially important to investors and funders alike.

To help our clients manage this complexity, our team has specialist property and stamp duty tax specialists working across our network in relation to tax efficient structuring for acquisitions, disposals, developments, projects and infrastructure across a wide variety of commercial property types. As a result, we cover all taxes affecting property transactions, and have a strong reputation in the market for handling complex deals in a practical and commercial astute way.

Working with other industries such as mining and energy, financial services, infrastructure and healthcare means we have in-depth knowledge of the stamp duty implications affecting these industries as well. We also advise clients on these implications in relation to M&A transactions, including business acquisitions, structuring of takeovers offers for listed and unlisted entities, and structuring of private equity investments and financing transactions.

Our extensive experience of handling complex real estate tax audits and negotiating settlements can help you navigate the real estate market.
