Whether you are looking to establish a new fund, raise new investment for an existing fund or ensure compliance and regulatory requirements are met we have all the expertise you need to structure your fund in a tax efficient manner.

Our experts can help you navigate the maze of tax issues which inevitably arise when it comes to considering the way in which the fund will make investments in terms of both the tax position of your investors as well as the impact on your carried interest/co-investment schemes for executives and the complex reporting requirements this drives.
