Whether you are involved in building, investing in, renting out or managing property, you need to ensure you are operating efficiently and cost-effectively so that you can maximise your returns.
Many property and construction clients tell us that cash flow, if not properly managed, can cause serious operating difficulties so it makes sense to ensure your business has robust financial systems in place.
At Milsted Langdon, we can provide help and advice to ensure you maintain and maximise your financial health at every stage. From cash flow to credit control, working capital issues to ownership structures and raising finance for investment to restructuring, we can make sure your business has a solid foundation for growth and success.
We offer a range of services to make day-to-day life easier for property and construction businesses, including bookkeeping, payroll, with particular expertise in the Construction Industry Scheme, and bespoke management information.
Our comprehensive experience in property and construction-related taxes includes stamp duty land tax (SDLT). As property transactions involve substantial sums, SDLT can be a significant cost consideration but the financial implications are just one factor to be considered.
Other SDLT issues that you may need to take into account include those relating to debts on properties transferred, exchanges, goodwill, leases, linked transactions, overage agreements and partnerships.
We understand that VAT issues relating to the sale or purchase of land or property and property development can be particularly challenging and by looking at the VAT consequences as a key part of your project pre-planning, we can help ensure VAT efficiency will be maximised and pitfalls avoided. Other tax issues you may wish to consider include capital allowances for plant, machinery and integral features and capital gains tax.
