The Irish real estate market has experienced considerable change in recent years. This has resulted in the emergence of a number of challenges for investors, but has also brought about significant opportunities. With this in mind, taxation is now more than ever one of the key factors for real estate investors when appraising investments, financing methods and development structuring.

Throughout the property development life cycle, practically all stages of real estate transactions have tax implications both in Ireland and internationally in many cases. Continuous change in both the domestic and international tax landscape continue to influence and impact how property investment is structured.

Ensuring your real estate decisions are based on proactive advice and support has never been more important. Evaluating the most fit-for-purpose structure early-on will ensure tax efficient investment.
