Construction

Despite being one of the largest sectors in the UK, the construction industry is also one of the most complex with a maze of regulations, uncertainties and risks. Furthermore, there is the increasing threat of an investigation by HM Revenue & Cutsoms (HMRC) who commonly impose financial settlements going back a number of years to collect tax, national insurance, interest and penalties on any errors that they discover.

With over 20% of our revenue coming from our property and construction clients and a further 20% from property related tax advice, our construction accountants, tax and business advisers truly understand the nature of the construction industry and the challenges you face.

We work with a wide range of clients in the construction sector including commercial and residential developers, contractors, sub-contractors, civil engineers, architects etc. guiding your business from start up, through growth strategies and surviving a changing economy to exit planning.

Alongside the traditional audit and accountancy services, our specialist construction sector team also provides the following services:

  • Fund raising for construction transactions
  • Cash flow management and planning especially when faced with a shortage of new finance options
  • Tax compliance to ensure you are meeting your tax obligations
  • Capital gains tax advice
  • VAT consultancy, including negotiations with HMRC
  • Advice in respect of the Construction Industry Scheme
  • Engagement of workers and employment tax issues including operating within working rule agreements and IR35
  • PAYE healthchecks to ensure your PAYE/benefits and expenses procedures would stand up to an HMRC investigation
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) advice
  • Extracting profits in a tax efficient manner
  • Corporate finance advice including mergers & acquisitions and disposals
  • Strategic planning to help you get your business to where you want it to be

We are not afraid to challenge.
