Property Tax Advice Specialists
It is crucial your business makes full use of every available resource it has. At STax we are proud to be helping businesses maximise their entitled tax reliefs, enabling them to thrive, rather than just survive.
Combining tax advisors, accountants and chartered surveyors we are ideally positioned to provide effective real estate tax advice that can make a positive difference to your business. Due to the recent changes to fixtures legislation, a large proportion of our work revolves around capital allowance claims. We do however advise across the board for real estate related tax matters, be it tax relief at purchase or capital gains on exit and everything in between.
Within the property sector we work closely with many different stakeholders including property investors/developers, accountants, solicitors, conveyancers, commercial agents and other property professionals. Please click on the link below for details of the services we provide.

“We have been involved in several projects with STax and have been highly impressed with the quality of advice they have given. I thoroughly endorse working with them.”
“STax has successfully advised many of our clients on capital allowances. Their work has not only had positive financial implication on our business but has also added real value to our client relationships. I have no hesitation in recommending STax to all our clients.”Paul Wade
“Over the time we have known Andrew Stanley at I have come to value his commercial and technical expertise on a wide range of subjects.”
“Tax as most people know is a complex area, Andrew Stanley of STax has the in-depth knowledge to simplify it. He is straightforward and able to apply his expertise to real life business problems with the aim of tax saving. Over the past few years I always found STax to be responsive, approachable and professional.”
“STax personnel are easy to deal with; always available on the telephone to offer sound advice, promptly resulting in us establishing a long-term relationship which has been quite beneficial to my business and to STax. STax overcame problems for me that other tax experts were unable to resolve resulting in my business making three (100%) successful claims for “pooled capital allowance”. STax worked closely with my solicitors to ensure that the Purchase Contract for a new business acquisition was completed in a manner that allowed for tax efficiency savings. I have a lot of other positive comments to make but I understand that a testimonial has to be short!”
“We instructed STax to review our main surgery in Hove at the end of 2012. We received an enquiry from HRMC and the District Valuer. I was impressed by how STax took ownership of the negotiations and brought them to a swift close. Overall we successfully claimed just under 40% of our expenditure in allowances. This gave us a massive and very welcome reduction in our tax bill. We have since instructed STax to look at allowances on the rest of our branches along with several other related tax matters.”
“Both us and our clients are very happy with the service and results of STax’s work.”
“I have referred a number of my clients as well as some of my contacts to them so that their capital allowances claims for their buildings are calculated. My clients have been impressed with the high level of professionalism & expertise shown by STax when carrying out their work.
Wherever I encounter clients with property interests I always ensure that they are aware of STax & the services they offer. The most important thing is that their work reduces the amount of tax my clients pay in a way that doesn’t involve the use of a risky Tax Avoidance Scheme & is made with full disclosure of their calculations to HMRC.”
“STax has worked with us on many property recovery and restructuring scenarios and examined the Capital Allowances case providing useful additional input in each case. Andrew and his team have always taken the time to explain their work with allowances and its implication in terms that non tax people can follow. I am pleased to recommend them.”
“I can highly recommend STax as they are friendly, efficient and experts at what they do. Even better, my tax bill for this year has just gone down by over £12,000 as a direct result. Carlsberg don’t do tax advisers, but if they did…”
“A complex area of taxation dealt with efficiently and professionally, from the first meeting with Andrew Stanley the whole team provided an informative and outstanding service throughout the whole process.”
“Very impressed with your service”
“Clarity throughout and achieved what we set out to do, communication was maintained to let me know every step of the way and the end result was achieved within a reasonable timescale. So all in all very pleased and will be using again!”
“We initially instructed STax to review our capital expenditure on extending and improving our facilities. STax worked efficiently and professionally, liaising seamlessly with our external auditors and internal finance team in order to deliver our capital allowance report. As a result of the confidence we have in the team at STax and their abilities, together with the support they provided us, we had no hesitation in engaging them again to review a second tranche of expenditure. We highly recommend their tax services!”
