Property Development and Investment


Helping property developers and investors succeed

Property developers and investors create value through their expertise in sourcing, developing and maximising the performance of land and buildings to create shareholder returns. Achieving this vision involves managing finance and risk and making smart decisions to ensure your properties perform and deliver sustainable rental and property disposal income. Key to this outcome is robust and careful management of audit, compliance, tax strategy and structuring advice.

BDO helps businesses navigate the complexities of real estate having advised many of the UK’s largest privately owned and listed property companies, real estate investors, UK REITs and SMEs for over 30 years. Our clients include businesses specialising in residential development, industrial property, commercial real estate, private rented sector, retail property, student accommodation, hotels, healthcare properties, infrastructure and care homes.

We provide accounting and management reporting services to over 20 property companies listed on the Main or Alternative Investment Market (AIM) of the London Stock Exchange giving us a robust understanding of the regulatory and governance requirements of listed real estate.

We optimise property tax outcomes through tax structuring and compliance, Capital Allowances, Land Remediation Relief and SDLT, Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and VAT advice.
