We look at a property purchase differently!
We do not promote nor advocate stamp duty avoidance schemes. Instead we seek to efficiently plan our clients’ property tax affairs by only utilising government approved statutory tax rules that are contained within the tax legislation, so that our clients only pay the tax intended by Parliament.
It's easy to assume a property purchase is always done in same way!
We work with leading solicitors and barristers who look at things differently.
You’ve probably assumed that you will have to pay Stamp Duty Land Tax. However, with recent changes in the law and a little careful planning, we can help you unlock significant tax savings on your stamp duty.

Yes, there are many advantages to us acting on your behalf in the sale of your existing property. By us controlling both your sale and purchase, we can ensure that funds from your sale (which may be required for future purchases) are available to you exactly when you need them.
The implementation of your tax planning will be carried by a number of SRA-regulated (Solicitors Regulation Authority) firms, and one of the cornerstones of their regulation is that the firms must act in your best interests at all times.

It is a mark of the quality of our advice that leading ABI-member insurers are happy to offer this cover.
