There are various reasons why you might wish to implement a demerger including:
Good planning is essential for any reorganisation or demerger. We encourage our clients to involve us early on in the process in order that we can ensure that all legal issues are identified at an early stage. We will ensure that these issues are properly addressed and that arrangements are properly documented and will stand up to scrutiny form, for example, a future purchaser, the tax authorities or a future liquidator.
A reorganisation or demerger will often involve the support of other specialist teams at BBS Law.
Our corporate team will work with their colleagues to ensure that your restructure is as efficient and seamless as possible.
