    How we can help


Ensuring the success of your property or construction business in the face of shifting demographics and economies, environmental pressures and fast-changing legislation is increasingly challenging. We can mitigate those pressures and help you secure and strengthen your business, through sound financial analysis, planning and advice. 

Over the decades we’ve supported clients in property and construction, and have seen many cycles of changes, so we’re well-prepared to guide your business through current events and adapt to what might come next. Over and above our audit, accounting and tax services, we’ll provide pragmatic advice on your financial strategies and structuring, with the focus on achieving sustainable growth and profits.  


Talk to us as early as possible about your property development, so we can explain how tax legislation will affect your post-tax returns. Once the development is up and running, our analysis will help you track and control your forecasted sales and costs, to ensure your project progresses efficiently and delivers the profits you expect.  

Much of our work with property developments involves tax compliance. It’s especially important to factor in tax liabilities if your transaction involves UK land, and to comply with the rules on tax avoidance we’ll explain what that means for you. Our tax specialists will advise on all areas of taxation including tax planning, VAT, LBTT (in Scotland), capital allowances, tax relief on debts, structuring and restructuring. 


Throughout all the ups and downs of changing regulations, labour shortages and materials costs, we’ll be your rock: the steady hand always ready with timely advice and suggestions for long-term stability. We’ve helped numerous construction businesses and contractors make the most of their opportunities, through our audits, accounting support, and effective tax planning. 

Our specialist services include advice on the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and IR35, indirect taxes, land related taxes, capital allowances, funding support and more. If yours is a family business, our team will join forces with our family business specialists to provide a seamless personalised service. 


We understand that now more than ever, you need informed and positive advice to deal with the challenges of tax and accounting regulations, supply chain issues and an unpredictable market. Help is at hand: our sector specialists will support you with their experience and expertise in tax planning and incentives, indirect taxes, compliance and finance. 

To lighten your workload, we can also help by providing a range of services from payroll support to outsourcing through our Virtual Finance Function. From advice on specific areas to a full accounting and business advisory service, we’ll tailor our approach to make your life simpler and help you plan for a more certain future. 


Recent legislation and events have given landlords much more to contend with. We sympathise, and from a tax and financial point of view, we’ll do all we can to ease your burden. Tax issues can seem very complex, particularly if multiple properties are involved, so we’ll help simplify matters, ensure you use all available tax reliefs and minimise tax liability, whilst ensuring compliance. 

Many landlords find our help with tax returns alone is a great comfort, but we can go much further than that. For example, we can advise on the most efficient tax structure for your business, reduce your overall IHT and CGT exposure and unravel the tax implications of issues such as lease modifications and variations.

    Arlene Cairns, James Donaldson & Sons

  • We are a small business and have been using AAB services for over 17 years. We have been well looked after, and although a small company, we sense a genuine interest from AAB to support the business with their services to reach its highest potential.
