Property Taxation

Whether you are buying, selling, occupying or developing property, we can help you make the most of your investment.

Property tax can be complex and obscure and is often subject to change; however, with property ownership widespread in the UK, the tax matters that come with this are an important consideration for many individuals as well as for the many businesses that are borne of the property industry.

Because of the intricacies and vulnerability to change, though, effective tax planning can be problematic for those investing in property or developing and managing property/ies.

We recognise the challenges associated with property-related ventures, which is why we have an in-house property tax team to assist you with property tax issues, as they arise.


If you are a property developer or are thinking of developing property sometime in the future, it is essential that you have access to well-considered tax advice at every stage of the development process.

Our specialist property team have years of experience in providing integrated solutions to property investors, developers, house builders and building contractors.

With close links to property and land agents and an unparalleled knowledge of the tax implications associated with the construction industry, we can offer you and your business the sound advice and support you need to make your venture a success.

Working with George Hay, you will have access to advisers who not only understand your issues, but also appreciate that no two developments are the same.

Investors & Landlords

Investing in property is an opportunity that appeals to many business owners and individuals.

Commercial property needs in the business and manufacturing sectors combined with an increasing population, more transient working patterns and the difficulties facing first time buyers who are looking to get on the property ladder have given rise to a ready supply of tenants who are willing to rent.

It seems there is no doubt that the commercial and private landlord will be a feature of the property scene, in the UK, for the foreseeable future.

Non-resident Landlords

If you have rental property, either commercial or residential, in the UK but your usual home is outside the UK then the Non-Resident Landlord Scheme (NRLS) will apply.

Whether you are a developer, investor or landlord and whether you are looking to expand, diversify, consolidate or re-organise your portfolio or business, we can provide considered tax advice designed to minimise your tax position and maximise your investment.

We can advise on the following, plus much more:

  • Capital allowances, for instance, during refurbishment and development
  • Property ownership structure
  • Revenue tax relief and tax efficient funding
  • Land remediation tax relief
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax relief
  • Property inheritance tax planning advice and capital gains
  • Maximising recoverable VAT
  • Property tax related negotiations with HMRC
  • Non-domicile property tax issues
