At each stage of the business lifecycle, we have the experience to provide specialist business advice in such key areas of taxation as:
- Corporate tax
- Research and development
- International tax.
Importantly, we can help you actively identify and address taxation risks to ensure that your business achieves an optimal tax position.
Whether you’re a medium or large corporate, subsidiary of a multinational or not-for-profit organisation, we will help you meet your tax and related business compliance obligations.
In the start-up phase, we can ensure that your business structure is truly tax-effective, and ensure that any tax losses are available to your business in future years, as well as advising on various business tax concessions.
As your business evolves, we can provide specialist input on industry-specific tax issues, and the tax consequences of dividend payment and retention strategies.
If you have international ambitions, we can assist with the tax implications associated with mergers and acquisitions, as well as understanding international tax regimes.
If you are contemplating selling a business, we can also help with effective exit strategies, including guidance on capital gains tax rules and indirect taxation.
Research and Development
R&D encompasses innovation across all aspects of a business, including new products, enhanced processes and systems, and new ways of service delivery. But innovation, of course, requires investment.
In this context, you may wish to consider government R&D incentive programs and grants; we can work with you to deliver comprehensive applications and submissions. We can also assist in identifying eligible R&D activities, including helping you develop robust business cases and produce relevant supporting documentation.
It is critical that management understand an organisation’s tax obligations to ensure compliance with the requirements of the international tax jurisdictions in which you both plan to and currently operate.
As a business advisory firm with a strong international network, we can help you navigate tax issues across multiple jurisdictions and develop effective tax optimisation strategies. We will ensure that you access all available international tax incentives, while meeting your tax compliance obligations in all jurisdictions.
In addition, we can help you address specific tax issues, such as:
- Thin capitalisation rules
- Tax authority risk reviews and audits
- Transfer pricing risks
- Repatriation of international profits
- Withholding tax obligations.
