A business plan helps business owners to identify their long-term goals, and provides clarity and purpose for management teams. It provides a blue print for how to go about achieving these goals and metrics against which to evaluate progress. But many business owners simply don’t have the time to undertake planning.
At Haines Watts Esher we can help you map out the business plan you need to pursue growth, raise funds, or build a management team. Haines Watts offer solid advice to help you grow your business; we provide clarity and certainty to help you achieve your ambitions. We’ll challenge your assumptions, but deliver support that helps you build lasting business value.
Our priority is to help you achieve a position where you are able to use your figures to inform your decision making, so that you can get the best out of your business.
Our FD solutions service aims to help you improve your finance function. We provide support to complement the existing financial expertise you have in your business. Whether you need a team to help you prepare your accounts, support with budgeting and forecasting, or someone to serve as a Financial Director at Board level – our flexible service could be just what you need.
We advise commercial and residential property developers, property investors, and property owners in Esher and across the wider Surrey area. We are focused on helping clients structure their real estate investments and property developments tax efficiently from the outset. This often involves combining our expertise across a range of specialist areas including corporate finance, tax, and business planning.
The tax landscape within the sector continues to evolve rapidly. Changes to capital allowances and Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) have made purchasing property more expensive, and impacted residential developers in particular. Inheritance tax changes continue to affect the high value property market, and changes to mortgage interest relief have affected buy-to-let property owners and the rental market in general.
We can help you unravel the implications of tax changes so that you can make informed decisions about your property investments and developments – whether these are held personally or in your business.
Our research and development tax experts have had substantial success in obtaining tax relief for businesses in the real estate sector, which has enabled these clients to continue investing in new projects. Our VAT experts also assist in complex property VAT matters and we advise clients on their Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) obligations.
