About Property Tax Planning

Property Tax Planning is an indispensable property guide for tax practitioners, property lawyers, surveyors and property owners. With worked examples throughout, it clearly highlights the tax planning opportunities and potential pitfalls that may arise during property transactions.

This logical and user-friendly book is divided into four sections reflecting the four categories of property ownership: property investors; property dealers and developers; trading premises; and private residences. Within each category all relevant tax planning areas are outlined chapter by chapter, with reference to legislation and case law.

This highly practical layout will help you quickly establish problem areas and potential tax breaks. It has been fully revised and updated to the latest Finance Act.

Contents includes:

Property Investors;
Property Dealers and Developers;
Trading Premises;
Private Residences.
