Case Studies

Background

A local property developer struggling with funding and looking to secure its future to allow it to realise its investments in key development opportunities.

Background

Having been recently appointed advisors to a company that rents out industrial and office buildings, we identified significant tax relief in the form of Capital Allowance was available on expenditure the company had incurred constructing new industrial and office units over a number of years. Our Specialist Capital Allowance Team was engaged to identify and maximise the expenditure qualifying for relief.

Background

Successful privately owned UK construction business with an ageing senior team of managers and directors who retained all company knowledge and held key relationships with customers/suppliers. Some members of the senior team (also shareholders) expressed their wish to retire in the medium term, but with neglect of business / future planning, AAB worked with them to develop a succession plan.

Background

One of the world’s largest window covering companies based in the US looking to expand their capabilities in the UK.

The client had identified an installation and project management contractor delivering window coverings to some of the largest commercial office developments in the UK.

Background

A local corporate property developer was approached to sell a building that had been constructed on land the company owned to a commercial real estate fund. The company shareholders wished to progress with the sale and contacted us for advice on the tax implications of this asset sale.

Background

Our client commenced in business as a property developer. Over a number of years, a significant element of the profit achieved from property development was invested in property which was being let to third parties.

The investment property was purchased in group companies and was now significant enough to prevent tax reliefs available to trading groups from being available.

We were approached to advise on how to tax efficiently separate the trading and non trading activities.

Background

The Corporate Finance team had been working closely with a client in the FM sector for several years in identifying and executing acquisitions to grow and diversify the group. AAB identified a business being marketed for sale that would be transformational for the existing group and delivered the deal to raise the funding and complete the accusation despite some significant challenges.

Background

A local headquartered business providing building and facilities maintenance and related services to public sector and private clients throughout Scotland. Due to limited personnel in their finance team they have required a number of services over the years.
