Tax Planning (individuals)

Tax planning and advice is woven through our private client practice and we advise clients around the world, often developing an overall plan that incorporates advice arising out of different jurisdictions.

We cover all aspects of UK income and capital taxation for individuals, trusts and related asset-holding structures.

We have particular expertise in the rules applying to entrepreneurs, fund managers, global families and in the complex rules governing the taxation of non-UK domiciled individuals.

We also assist clients with tax investigations and voluntary disclosures, including disclosures and settlements under amnesty regimes. Our tax litigation team has experience at every level of the UK courts as well as before the ECJ and foreign courts, but our aim is to resolve matters through discussions with HMRC or through more formal mediation.

The technical side is superb, and their ongoing work with leading tax counsel across the piece keeps them at the front end across this. They also have a very good practical experience on the ground."
