Business restructuring to become more tax-efficient

Restructuring your company can create a more tax-efficient corporate structure.

Corporate restructuring can significantly reduce your tax liability going forward, and receiving business restructuring advice will ensure that a reorganisation takes advantage of any applicable tax relief. Without careful consideration, restructuring a business could lead to an increased tax burden during the reorganisation process. Our dedicated consultants are always on hand to provide you with trusted, valuable advice.

Additionally, tax liabilities can include stamp duty on the transfer of shares, stamp duty land tax (SDLT) on the transfer of any property, not to mention VAT and Corporation Tax on any income that is generated. Not considering the tax implications fully can also lead to the loss of available tax relief.
