Geldards’ tax team advises a range of business clients on their corporate transactions to ensure these transactions are as tax efficient as possible. Our specialist tax team work alongside transactional lawyers to devise appropriate tax strategies for your business, such as the preparation and agreement of tax indemnities and tax warranties on the purchase or sale of shares in companies.
We also provide advice on the re-structuring of company groups, including mergers or demergers, prior to a sale which can involve applying for tax clearance from HM Revenue & Customs to ensure that any reorganisation can take place on a tax neutral basis. We regularly apply for relief from stamp duty after a reorganisation has taken place, while ensuring that the reorganisation satisfies all the relevant requirements to qualify for the stamp duty relief in the first place. We work closely with your existing advisers including your accountants to ensure a seamless service.
Geldards can advise on the tax efficient raising of funds for the growth of the company under Seed EIS and EIS including advice on qualifying as an investee company before and after the investment.
