We are capital allowances specialists working with clients across the UK, Europe and Asia.


Our clients include household names, overseas property investors, hotel and care groups and businesses and private investors across all sectors.


They tell us that they can trust us implicitly and we value the long-term relationships that this fosters. Working alongside professional trusted advisers we deliver a responsive and responsible outsourced service. Using combined skills we can give our clients the best advice at the lowest risk.



Ash Desai, Managing Director. Cedar Care

“I have worked with Six Forward for a few years now and I believe that they should be high up on your list of people to call whether you are buying, selling or extending a care home.


Also get them to work with your accountant and check to see if they can save you anything on the homes you already have.


You will be delighted. I was.”


As a team, we’re passionate about building strong, solid and meaningful relationships with each and every one of the trusted advisers we work with, and our focus is always on how best to support them in bringing maximum tax benefits to their own portfolio of clients.


Providing specialist knowledge and expert guidance, we support our advisers and owners every step of the way to identify, secure, and communicate opportunities for capital allowance tax relief in any commercial property transaction.



We’re rightly proud to deliver responsive and effective solutions to more than meet every one of our clients’ bespoke needs, and our early involvement means that we’re able to advise and guide on the most suitable strategies which provide the optimum outcome every time.


And our results really do speak for themselves.  We analysed over £1 Billion annually giving our clients tax savings in excess of £15m per annum.
