As an architect, you are in a unique position to be the most influential individual to generate tax efficiencies. In a new build or refurbishment project, which will provide significant cash-flow advantages for your Clients. However, we realise that you have a number of different roles to play on a project, including public safety and overseeing the project, which are often more important to you than tax.

Therefore, at Ċavetta Consulting one of our objectives is to provide support to you in maximising your Client’s tax savings.  We can provide assistance to you in a number of ways including:

  • providing access to initial high-level tax saving advice at the inception of the project
  • provide design reviews to ensure they are tax efficient, which may mitigate the need for value engineering the design
  • providing your team with the support to enable you to incorporate tax efficient elements within the designs
  • providing you with advice to allow you to specify components that will allow your client to benefit from 100% and 150% tax reliefs

As Chartered Surveyors ourselves, we appreciate the wide variety of work that a general practice surveyor undertakes both in and out of the office. We have worked with a number of general practice surveyors involved in the management, valuation, buying, selling and development of land and property, to provide them with a tax valuation service to their Clients.

We understand for you, that the change to the rules on claiming capital allowances, in relation to fixtures contained in second-hand properties, has added further levels of due diligence before a transaction is completed.  This is where Ċavetta Consulting can assist you to ensure the deal is completed on time.

Traditionally, the impact of capital allowances in sale and letting transactions was considered post completion. However, for tax relief to be maximised, it must be considered at the stage where the heads of terms are being agreed in a transaction, and the change in legislation has encouraged that.

At Ċavetta Consulting, our objective is to provide support to you by adding value to your business in a number of ways, including:

  • facilitating commercial property transactions to proceed smoothly, by carrying out a full capital allowances health check on the property before it goes to market
  • giving you the tools to help realise the market value in relation to contaminated or derelict land
  • assisting you to structure tax efficient lease incentives for your Clients.
  • providing an election preparation service that fully meets the requirements of the Capital Allowances Act 2001
  • by recommending clauses to be contained commercial sales and with respect to agreements for lease
