The Taxation lawyers at Druces provide a service driven by the needs of our clients. Tax considerations are at the heart of almost all transactions, be they high value corporate matters or the efficient structuring of personal finances. We advise upon both private and commercial tax issues for individuals, partnerships, companies and other corporate structures, charities and trusts, including in relation to Corporation Tax, Value Added Tax (VAT), Capital Gains Tax (CGT), Inheritance Tax (IHT) and Stamp Duty. We advise on the UK taxation aspects of corporate and property deals, such as mergers, acquisitions and joint ventures, as well as ongoing matters such as group reorganisations, employment-related taxation and incentive schemes.
Our clients include both UK and offshore individuals and we regularly advise across the full range of personal taxes, including planning involving Inheritance Tax (IHT) and Capital Gains Tax (CGT) and the reliefs which may be available against them, as well as business succession and exit planning. We can cover such matters as private and charitable tax planning and mitigation, the tax efficient drafting of wills, post-death re-organisation of estates and the creation, administration and breaking of both onshore and offshore settlements.
We work with offshore clients, including by giving advice to high net worth individuals on arrival in and departure from the UK as well as on questions of domicile and residence and the applicability of the Remittance Basis Charge. We are used to working in conjunction with or alongside accountants and in-house tax advisors and can provide as much support as our clients require in dealing with filings and clearances which may be required by or from HM Revenue & Customs.
