Our funds practice delivers a streamlined and co-ordinated service to our clients. The funds tax group provides an integral part of this service.
Tax neutrality for investors and tax efficiencies for management are vital to a fund's success. We work closely with our clients and colleagues to understand the commercial objectives of the fund and its participators' profiles. This allows us to identify the most suitable investment vehicle and management structure for each fund.
Our tax capabilities go further than fund formation. We
also regularly advise on the tax implications of realisations made
by funds, the acquisition and disposal of fund management
businesses, carried interest arrangements and the tax efficient
reconstruction, relocation or winding up of fund structures.
Our extensive experience spans all the principal types of onshore and offshore fund, as well as joint venture, co-investment and carried interest vehicles.
We regularly advise on the tax issues relevant to private equity and venture capital funds, real estate funds, infrastructure funds, renewable energy and cleantech funds. Given our unrivalled knowledge of the film industry, we are also uniquely placed to advise on the tax implications of investment funds in that sector.
