An evolving business will often reach a point whereby its structure obsolete or inflexible. The ability to identify the need to restructure without triggering unnecessary taxes or other costs is a challenging but value driven process.

The main objectives of a business restructure are to ensure flexibility for tax-effectiveness, asset protection (where possible) and compliance with regulations.

Establishing the right business structure is essential for protecting your assets against unforeseeable circumstances or losses, be it ‘safety’ from potential litigation or from losing control of your business.
