If you are looking to sell your business, our Company & Commercial solicitors are here to help you achieve your desired outcome in the most expedient and tax-efficient way.
We’ll help you evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of share sales versus asset sales and work with you and your accountants or tax advisers to decide on the most beneficial tax treatment for your circumstances.
With Corporation Tax set to increase, fears that Capital Gains Tax will soon follow the same trajectory and rising speculation regarding the future loss or reduction of Business Asset Disposal Relief, now is the time to get your business sale ready.
