This session will cover the key aspects of UK tax for property owners & investors - Stamp Duty Land Tax, Inheritance Tax, Capital Gains Tax, Corporate & Income Tax. The following sessions will focus on aspects of Property Valuation & Finance with leading experts from the field.

For our discussion on Taxation considerations, we are delighted to be joined by:

As well as providing advice, David has also set up a service to help homeowners reclaim overpaid SDLT (SDLT Refunds), the first comprehensive SDLT calculator tool for solicitors (Compass) and has recently uncovered a persistent issue in the UK Pensions Industry that potentially means billions of pounds in wrongly paid SDLT being returned to UK pension stakeholders.
