Property and Construction

How can I achieve the best for my property or construction company?

The property and construction industries are some of the UK’s largest sectors, however, they are also some of the most complex. Property and construction activities have involved a major part of Hill Wooldridge’s client base since the Firm was established in 1928. Our detailed knowledge of these evolving sectors combined with our specialist skills make us the ideal partner to help you navigate its complexities and challenges. Our experience in the property and construction industries provides clients with the confidence and knowledge to realise their development plans whilst benefiting from efficient financial and tax advice. 

We have a vast portfolio of clients in these industries located across the UK. These include commercial and residential builders, property investors, property developers, architects, incorporation of buy-to-let portfolios, managing agents and property management companies. 

We specialise in the audit of construction companies, particularly groups of companies. We have audited numerous construction company groups over our history. Through this we have gained valuable experience and knowledge in the construction industry and have been able to provide clients important advice on groups including:

  • VAT advice and solutions
  • Capital allowances planning
  • Research and development tax credit claims
  • Group taxation relief
  • Accounting disclosures
