Business Structuring

We will recommend what we believe is the best structure for enterprise.

That will be influenced by the industry sector, the type of business, the expected duration of the operation of the business, the tax, financial and regulatory framework, funding and ultimately the needs and objectives of the owners of the business.

For instance, are you building to sell? Who is the natural buyer and why? Are you looking to trade long term and reap the rewards for you, your family and co-owners? What is the best structure for effective decision making at an operational and ownership level?

Examples of the structures we have used to address those and the many other questions that arise include:

  • Companies – private, public or limited by guarantee
  • Incorporated Associations
  • Joint ventures
  • Special Purpose Vehicles
  • Partnership
  • Discretionary or Unit trusts
  • Sole trader

These are not exhaustive and in some instances will involve a combination of structures in order to offer the best solution now and into the future
