IFS - Areas of Practice

Real Estate

Real estate investments can be one of the most complex investments to structure because of the diversity of direct and indirect taxes which an investor or developer may incur. Besides real estate investments through Private Equity Funds and Renewable Energy Funds, IFS has structured direct real estate developments including transactions valued at between $50 mn and $500 mn in the UK, US, Russian, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Georgia.

Having written the book “Structuring International Real Estate Transactions”, Roy Saunders has significant experience in maximising the return from such investments, whether this be rental income, trading profits or capital gains, and ensures that indirect taxes including transfer taxes are also considered in an efficient and compliant structure.
