Tax Advisory

Navigating the complexities of taxation in the United Kingdom requires expert guidance and a proactive approach. Our Tax Advisory services in the UK are your trusted partner for making strategic tax decisions and ensuring your financial well-being.

  • Expert Tax Guidance: Our team of seasoned tax advisory professionals possesses a deep knowledge of UK tax laws and regulations. We offer expert guidance on tax planning, compliance, and optimization.
  • ATED and NRCGT: ATED is a tax that applies to high-value residential properties in the UK that are owned by certain non-natural persons. Non-natural persons include companies, partnerships with corporate members, and collective investment schemes. The primary objective of ATED is to discourage the use of corporate structures to hold UK residential properties, particularly for tax avoidance purposes. NRCGT is a tax on the capital gains made by non-residents when they dispose of certain UK residential property interests. It applies to both individuals and entities that are not resident in the UK for tax purposes. Non-resident property owners need to be aware of the ATED and NRCGT rules, as non-compliance can result in penalties and interest charges. Additionally, tax advisory regulations may change over time. Our knowledgeable professionals ensure compliance with the rules and help you stay updated with the latest rules and obligations.
  • Tax Efficiency: Maximizing tax efficiency is paramount for businesses of all sizes. We provide strategic tax planning solutions tailored to your unique circumstances, helping you minimize tax liabilities legally.

  • VAT and Indirect Taxes: Staying compliant with VAT and indirect tax regulations is essential. Our experts assist with VAT registration, returns, and compliance, ensuring your business meets all obligations.
  • International Taxation: In an increasingly globalized world, international tax considerations are crucial. We offer guidance on cross-border transactions, double taxation treaties, and transfer pricing.
  • Tax Audits and Investigations: Facing a tax audit or investigation can be daunting. We represent your interests and help you navigate these processes, ensuring your rights are protected.
  • Dispute Resolution: Tax disputes can arise for various reasons, such as disagreements over tax liabilities, audits, penalties, or the interpretation of tax laws and regulations. We assist in the assessment of the dispute, analysis, and communication with tax authorities, suggest alternative dispute resolution, and provide litigation support, negotiation, appeals, compliance, and future planning support.
  • Disclosures: It is important to note that tax disclosures are subject to specific deadlines and rules set by HMRC. Accurate and timely reporting is crucial to avoid penalties and legal consequences. We can play a key role in helping individuals and businesses navigate the complex world of tax disclosures and ensure compliance with UK tax laws.
  • SEIS/ EIS: Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) is a government-backed initiative that encourages investment in very early-stage startups and small, high-risk companies. SEIS-eligible companies must meet various criteria, including being a UK-based, unlisted company with assets under £200,000 and fewer than 25 employees. Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) is designed to encourage investment in small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with the goal of promoting economic growth. EIS-eligible companies must meet criteria, including being a UK-based, unlisted company, having fewer than 250 employees, and having gross assets of £15 million or less. Both SEIS and EIS play a vital role in attracting private investment to startups and growing companies, which can be essential for their development and success. It is crucial for both investors and companies to meet the eligibility criteria and comply with the rules and regulations set out by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) to take advantage of these schemes, which KNAV can help you with.
