Energy, Infrastructure and Utilities
We advise on VAT, customs and excise duties, and environmental taxes for all sectors of the energy and resources market. We specialise in indirect tax issues in the following sectors:
- Oil and gas
- Renewable energy
- Nuclear energy
Our work within the different sectors has ranged from the provision of a VAT helpline service for a multinational oil and gas client to advising on the VAT recovery of acquisitions for a mining company and advising on the VAT treatment of renewable energy. We frequently act as advisers on large scale nuclear energy projects and have advised the UK government on decommissioning and other policy issues in this area.
We have strong links with each of the different sectors and many of our people have a background, or have been seconded to clients, in these areas. Our global network enables us to build close relationships in different countries – for example, we work closely with our South African and Australian firms in order to service the mining businesses in these countries.
We also recognise the large impact that environmental taxes are having on each of the industry sectors listed above and ensure we keep our energy and resources clients up-to-date on changes in environmental taxes and their potential impacts.
