The key to any successful investment is profit. As well as returns from a high-performing project, you should also look to minimised tax liabilities as the other part of the ‘success equation’. As a property investor, you already know that property and taxation make a volatile combination – one you have to get right if you want to avoid significant tax costs. At Hazlewoods, we aim to help you keep more of your money for future projects.

The areas of expertise in which we are often asked to help investors include:

  • Tax
    We can minimise your exposure to Stamp Duty Land Tax, and help you to design the most tax-efficient structure for property purchase. We can also help you to enjoy maximum benefit from any capital allowances on property purchases, thus reducing your future tax liabilities on rental income. We can also help you to minimise any taxes due on sale of property. We can also ensure that any claims for contaminated land relief are maximised.
  • Inheritance Tax and VAT
    For property owners or shareholders in property ownership companies, we offer a range of estate planning services, and can help plan to reduce inheritance tax. We can also help you to decide whether to register for VAT and whether to ‘opt to tax’ your properties.
  • Finance
    We have relationships with all the major lenders and know the investment criteria of each. We can help you to secure project finance at competitive rates of interest.
  • Accountancy, Audit and other services 
    We can provide accountancy & audit services, and advise on the Construction Industry Scheme, and financial forecasting.

When you work with Hazlewoods, you work with real specialists. Trust us to resolve your problems, help you plan for the future, and ensure that you retain the rewards of success.
