Commercial Real Estate has traditionally been a sound investment offering economies of scale, additional cash flow and the potential of large payoffs at disposal. The tax regime surrounding non resident individuals owning UK real estate has significantly changed in 2016, but there are still significant tax breaks available to all real estate investors.

Lancaster Knox works with real estate developers offering advice that not only considers the best holding structure for a new commercial real estate portfolio, but we will also review the position if there is an existing portfolio. We will work with a fiduciary specialist to incorporate the correct structure.

Deductible expenses can include interest charges on borrowings, and so many investors introduce borrowing in order to achieve tax efficiencies and an amplification of investment performance. During the course of ownership Lancaster Knox will also recommend any capital allowance claims and other appropriate tax planning available to the client.
