Business valuations

There are many reasons for valuing a business including buying or selling a company, selling or transferring shares, business or personal separations or combinations, or setting up a share scheme for your employees.

Whatever your intention, valuing your company is a useful exercise. Praxis has a wealth of experience in this area and can provide you with a well-informed and credible valuation.

Business restructuring

Many business failures could have been prevented if the owners had taken proactive action.

Equally, many opportunities to take advantage of an ever-changing tax landscape have been missed, leading to unnecessary tax liabilities.

Let us advise you on the pros and cons of the various options and implement an effective solution for you.. 

Tax reliefs and incentives

There exists a whole host of tax reliefs and incentives that can help you to invest in new areas whilst limiting your risk and in some cases injecting cash back into your business.

The Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) and Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS) allow certain tax reliefs for investors who subscribe for qualifying shares in qualifying industries.

Research and Development Tax Credits can provide tax relief up to 230% of qualifying expenditure and can lead to cash refunds of tax.
