Andrew provides advice on corporate tax issues to companies ranging from start-ups to established, multi-million pound turnover companies. His broad range of experience allows him to consider a large number of tax areas and identify the main tax problems so that practical solutions can be found.
Andrew has advised on the implementation of major group reorganisations as well as assisting clients on the sale of their companies in order to minimise the amount of tax payable. Andrew does not believe in “tax schemes” but in ensuring that clients take proper advantage of the tax reliefs set out in the legislation.

Considering the VAT, Stamp Duty Land Tax and capital allowances consequences of the transaction at an early stage is vital in order to try and minimise the tax exposure. Slight variations in the deal structure can have widely differing tax consequences.
