Business restructuring to become more tax-efficient

One of the key reasons to consider restructuring is the tax-efficient benefits that could come with it. Reorganising the structure of a business can create tax advantages by creating a more tax-efficient corporate structure.

From a tax planning point of view, restructuring your business could significantly reduce your tax liability going forward. However, it is important to seek professional legal and financial advice to ensure that a reorganisation takes advantage of any applicable tax reliefs. Without careful consideration, restructuring could lead to an increased tax burden during the reorganisation process.

These tax liabilities can include stamp duty on the transfer of shares, stamp duty land tax (SDLT) on the transfer of any property, VAT and Corporation Tax on any income that is generated. It could also lead to the loss of any tax reliefs.
