We can flex your ownership structures to meet many different needs and objectives, often in highly tax advantageous ways.

A prudent owner will keep their structure under ongoing review throughout the life of the business. In practice, there are many reasons why the structure might need to change and many different triggers for that, including things like:

  • Tax management
  • Asset protection
  • Staff incentivisation
  • Succession
  • Shareholder buy-out
  • Preparing for sale
  • Resolving disputes

Planning techniques in the arena of reorganisations and reconstructions can achieve fundamental changes in structure in highly tax efficient, and even often totally tax-free ways.

Our planning work routinely includes

  • Incorporations and dis-incorporations
  • New holding companies
  • Divisionalisations
  • Succession plans and Management Buy-Outs (MBO’s)
  • Company purchases of own shares
  • Statutory demergers
  • Capital reductions
  • Demergers
  • Partitions

Each one of the above is potentially capable of solving key issues at particular times.

“We follow a simple principle laid out by our founders: It’s not about keeping up. It’s about staying ahead.”
