Corporate Tax Compliance
We bring our ambition and commercial acumen to your tax affairs. We work to identify any beneficial claims or elections and provide advance warning of any changes in tax law which may affect your business.
Our Tax Advisory teams help you manage taxes and mitigate risks related to supply chain restructuring, mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and intellectual property (IP). We guide a wide range of clients from SMES to multinationals helping them to develop and implement practical tax management strategies.
Tax Due Diligence
Whether it is acquisition and/or sale of shares or a business, it is important to evaluate the tax consequences of such transaction and our specialist team can help flag any issues with a potential sale and help you elevate options.
The international business tax world is full of scary acronyms, from BEPS to DPT, and one where the slightest slip can cost you millions. As part of the Baker Tilly International network, we have colleagues in more than 149 countries ready to help you navigate the complexity of doing business across borders, so you can focus on running your business.
Transfer Pricing Compliance Solutions
We specialise in helping growth companies navigate the plethora of transfer pricing rules that they face globally. These rules will vary in terms of emphasis and practice around the world.
The clients we help can be businesses that are tipping over from being small or medium sized businesses with less than 250 employees worldwide (and less than €50 million consolidated turnover or balance sheet assets of less than €43 million) into large sized businesses that breach these thresholds; or perhaps more established larger businesses that are re-thinking their transfer pricing models as their businesses evolve.
Baker Tilly Global Tax Solutions
At Baker Tilly Global Tax Solutions, we provide a holistic service for multinational businesses in relation to their tax and accounting needs. Through our structure, we leverage the tax and accounting capabilities across our Baker Tilly network to provide our clients with accelerated international tax services through a solutions-based ethos.
Relief and allowances
We have expert knowledge on the process for accessing a variety of tax reliefs and allowances including:
- Venture capital tax reliefs, including the EIS, SEIS and VCT Investment Schemes
- The Annual Investment Allowance
The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) and Venture Capital Trust (VCT) Investment Schemes are designed to help smaller, higher-risk trading companies raise finance by offering a range of tax reliefs to investors who purchase new shares in those companies. The reliefs can provide the investor with a significant income tax break, and also provide the opportunity to defer capital gains.
The Annual Investment Allowance (AIA) is an effective way to reduce the overall cost of purchasing plant and machinery. The AIA has been set at such a level that most businesses will be able to write-off much of their annual cost of acquiring plant and machinery as a tax deduction in the year of acquisition.
Without proper advice before your corporate reorganisation, you could face corporation tax, income tax, capital gains tax, stamp duty land tax or VAT implications. Our team advises on disposals, acquisitions, simplifying your group structure, demergers and share capital reorganisations such as share buy-backs.
