Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS)

The UK Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) market continues to evolve and REITs can deliver attractive commercial benefits including the exemption of UK tax on property investment and capital gains.

We are REIT specialists that can help you meet the strict conditions and requirements for REITs. You will be joining the majority of REITs listed on the London Stock Exchange who already work with our team.

Our expert team which spans audit, tax and advisory has a deep-seated understanding of REITs and investment property. We work with businesses across a number of REIT asset classes including healthcare, supermarkets, warehouses, industrial, offices, car parks and long-lease assets.

We have supported many REITs throughout their lifecycle helping them to maximise the value of their assets and their businesses. From supporting clients as they converted to REIT status and then guiding them as they develop, to helping launch new REITs, helping fundraises to helping clients with development and acquisition plans, there is no aspect of REITs that we are not experienced in. You can also rely on us to support your REIT’s large equity and M&A transactions.

We act as Reporting Accountant for many businesses entering the REIT regime, testing sponsor investment propositions, structuring funds, developing and implementing asset acquisition strategies, monetising real estate assets and dealing with the issues associated with the termination of funds and return of capital to investors.

Through regular dialogue with the European Public Real Estate Association (EPRA) and the British Property Federation (BPF) we keep you and your REIT ahead of the curve on economic and regulatory impacts affecting their business.

Our Business Services and Outsourcing team also provide outsourced accounting services for a number of real estate clients including day-to-day accounting and management reporting, VAT, payment services and company secretarial services.
