Property & Construction

Property & Construction

Given that a huge part of the Scottish economy is either directly related to the property and construction sector or is affected by it, it is vital that the sector has access to sound financial and business advice to help it address its present challenges and prepare for future prosperity.

The range of challenges confronting the sector include: tightening margins; a shortage of availability of finance; lack of demand from a depressed housing market; changes to planning rules; a reduction in public sector work and an extension of the time lag between the bidding process and a project starting on site.

Yet despite such challenges, property and construction firms with good management teams continue to perform well by building long-term relationships with key suppliers and subcontractors and confronting any dispute resolution matters early and pragmatically.

How we can help you
With a significant number of clients operating within the property and construction sector, we have the experience and expertise available to help management teams through the provision of advice on a range of issues, including assurance, tax, CIS and IR35 matters.

In addition to providing advice on Income and Corporation Tax, our specialist VAT and indirect tax team distinguishes us from our contemporaries. Click here to find out more about our Tax and VAT services.

Other advice available includes assistance with obtaining, reorganising and restructuring finance, whilst our audit and accounts department can help with the preparation of management accounts and forecasting.

Meanwhile, our SME clients with no requirement for a full-time in-house finance director, regularly access the full range of our financial and business advice to provide them with the strategic overview and guidance they need.
