Key advice for clients looking into investment property accounting

Many people believe that property investment is relatively simple but the most successful investment property ventures always have an experienced, focussed and committed team of advisers on board to support them.

The range of strategic and structural options available to investment property clients has never been wider or more complex than it is now. Advising on investment property and real estate is a highly specialised area where the understanding of time sensitive, transactional work is paramount.

Success in this arena requires rather more than just good technical ability. Our team of specialists is skilled in all relevant matters from bookkeeping to designing high level, tax-efficient structures for the business. One of the keys to success in investment property is the ownership structure.  Is it suitable for both the long and short term?  Should it be in sole or joint ownership, partnership, LLP, corporate, group or a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) – or something else?
