Capital Tax Consultancy

CAT - Gift & Inheritance Tax 

Economic success and growth have resulted in increasing numbers of business people and entrepreneurs enjoying the financial rewards of their hard work. At Quintas Registered Auditors based in Cork, Ireland our team of experienced Tax Consultants understand how important it is to preserve and enhance this wealth to help them achieve these objectives in a tax efficient manner.

Tax is an important issue in succession planning and careful thought and consideration in advance of retirement can significantly reduce your tax liabilities. 

We will identify and help maximise the relevant tax reliefs available and assist you through a smooth and timely transaction.

Besides passing the business onto their children, owners also want to ensure a continuous income stream for their own retirement. 

Stamp Duty

Stamp duty can represent a significant cost when acquiring property such as land, shares, businesses and intangible assets. 

The Quintas taxation team will advise on minimising stamp duty arising on such transactions.

We specialise in structuring reconstructions, reorganisations and amalgamations to come within specific relieving provisions of the stamp duty legislation.

We also have experience in advising on methods to minimise stamp duty on land acquisitions and sales, on the acquisitions of businesses, and on the tax efficient transfer of intellectual property.
