Most commercial solicitors will be asked to provide advice in relation to the structure of their client’s commercial affairs. This task always involves consideration of competing factors. How do you balance tax issues against asset and creditor protection? How complex should the structure be, and what will that mean for ongoing accounting costs? What will give your client scope for growth? When might you choose a company or a trust? If you choose a trust, should you use a corporate trustee, and if so, when? In which entity should valuable assets be held?
In this practical workshop, presented by experienced taxation and insolvency practitioners Humphry Faas, Sam Radici, Fiona Halsey and Lee Christensen will firstly present basic principles and explain the interactions of competing priorities, and then work through a realistic case study so participants have a practical understanding of commercial structuring.
