Reorganisations and Demergers

We advise companies and shareholders on all forms of reconstructions and reorganisations including demergers.

There are lots of reasons why a company or group may be restructured or split up but whatever the reason minimising the tax cost of any restructuring will be critical.

We work closely with companies and shareholders to understand the key commercial objectives and work to achieve this in the most tax efficient way.

Key issues will include:-

  • ensuring that all available corporation tax reliefs and personal tax reliefs will apply and obtaining the necessary HMRC tax clearances;
  • advising on the impact on existing and new share incentive arrangements;
  • working with the corporate lawyers to ensure any proposed tax structure is possible from a company law perspective;
  • minimising any SDLT, stamp duty and VAT costs.
