Your business. You have either built it up from scratch yourself or taken it over, possibly from your parents or even from previous generations. You are working hard every day to grow the business further. In doing so, you come up against legal issues such as corporate tax and ‘BTW’ (VAT/turnover tax). Our staff in our corporate tax and BTW advice section will be happy to advise you and ensure that you don’t pay too much tax or fail to get everything you are entitled to.
ADVISING ON A POSSIBLE CORPORATE TAKEOVER
One option you may consider to grow your business further is that of taking over another business. However, how do you make sure that you’re not buying ‘a pig in a poke’ or paying too much for an acquisition target? Our mergers and acquisitions staff will be happy to help you, including by advising you on a possible corporate takeover.
DOING BUSINESS ABROAD?
You may be developing foreign operations or intend to expand your business across the border. If so, it is essential to have the right legal structure in place. Our international tax staff can help you to set up the appropriate and most tax-efficient structure, both here and across the border. What’s more, we can call on our extensive international network for this work.
If you do business internationally, then normally you will have to pay tax in more than one country. The question is: how do you make sure you’re not paying too much tax? We can show you the best Transfer Pricing system to use.
THINKING ABOUT THE FUTURE
Thinking about the future also means realising that at some point in time you will have to hand your business over to someone else, preferably to a family member of course. However, is this feasible in practice? And if so, what’s the best way to do this? We would be happy to advise you on the various options available for ensuring that the company succession or takeover is the best one for both yourself and your succeeding generations.
