Private business taxation and structuring

For optimal operation and tax compliance

Establishing the best structure for your business not only sets a solid foundation at the outset of your organisation’s lifecycle – where you are operating within a suitably optimised tax environment, with asset protection advantages – but can support and elevate your future plans and ambitions.

Getting it right for the short-term, with a long-term view of your goals, will mean different things to different businesses.

Our team works with private business, its owners and leaders to set up your operation in a range of structures – from trusts and partnerships to companies – to ensure you meet your tax obligations, and also proactively evolve your structure as you seek financing or pursue new growth opportunities.

We understand the environment in which you operate, and get to know your future goals – for instance, M&A, overseas expansion, diversification, raising capital and IPOs – and develop a business structure to complement and elevate this strategy.

Any change in structure during your business lifecycle is likely to come with taxations and other regulatory considerations. Whilst these generally cannot be avoided, there are a range of taxation ‘roll-overs’ that may be available to alleviate some of this burden. Therefore, we take a comprehensive, long-term view at all stages of your business growth to assess the most sustainable and efficient plan for you so multiple costly restructuring is avoided at each of your milestones.
