Stamp Duty can have a significant impact on many businesses, whether you deal with the transfer of stocks and securities or land and property transactions. Both have implications for domestic and foreign stamp duty, making it important to consider the broader impact of all transactions that take place.
Our Stamp Duty team is part of a global network. With extensive experience we are ideally placed to provide practical advice and workable solutions whatever industry sector you are in.
If you would like to discuss any of these issues, please contact our group partner, Michael Quinlan
We offer advice on the SDLT implications of a number of commercial and high value residential property transactions, including investment structures, anti-avoidance provisions and disclosure obligations.
We can provide you with guidance around the status and transaction conditions for the various exemptions relating to SDRT, European law aspects and reclaims, as well as sponsored access and derivatives.
We can advise you on the SDRT implications of equity fund changes and mergers as well as the treatment of corporate, trust and contractual based funds in different countries.
We can help you with the impact that stamp duty, SDRT and SDLT have on group reorganisations, reconstructions and de-mergers. This includes making clients aware of reliefs that are available to them, the clawback of SDLT for companies holding UK real estate, and the effective management of such charges.
