THE Leeds office of leading North law firm Ward Hadaway has been shortlisted for four industry awards.
Often businesses develop over many years or through a series of acquisitions to the point where its structure is no longer appropriate.
This could be for a variety of reasons – maybe the original synergy between different businesses has gone and they could operate better apart, or often in private companies spare cash may have been invested in a property portfolio. Having this inside the same corporate structure can cause immense problems if any corporate transaction is to be undertaken and so a reorganisation may well be called for.
We can offer expert help and advice at every stage of the process, from planning the reorganisation and advising on which structure is most appropriate for your business, to obtaining tax clearance and implementing the reorganisation.
We will also manage the process to ensure there is minimum disturbance to your business.
