At CTS, our focus is tax.
We structure companies, sales, acquisitions, inheritances, succession and debt so that they are as efficient as possible from a tax perspective.
We maximise reliefs, we minimise exposure and we ensure that compliance requirements are met.
We negotiate with Revenue where necessary.
“CTS have dealt with all tax related matters for the Talbot Group Nursing Home and Intellectual Disability Group for many years. We always found CTS to be efficient, extremely professional, responsive and solution-focussed. There certainly is a lot of “outside-the-box-thinking” in CTS which makes them an invaluable part of our business”
“CTS have provided detailed advice on tax matters to me personally and our group for a number of years. CTS have a very practical, personal and resourceful approach and they put our personal and commercial wishes in the forefront of any of their recommendations. Fergal and his team make sure our affairs are structured as efficiently as possible.”
“CTS have been an extremely valuable partner to our firm. Their knowledge and in-house capacity to carry out tax restructuring is a great back-up for our clients. We know that we are delivering the best possible outcome when we bring CTS on board”
