The benefits of reconstructing your business

Category: Corporate Finance - Posted On: Aug 6 2021

The COVID pandemic has not only had a massive impact on the way businesses have traded, but on how they are structured. Our EQ Corporate Finance team have been working closely with clients to make sure they aren’t facing any unnecessary tax liabilities as a result.

Over the last 18 months, we have been involved in numerous business reconstructions with some undertaken, in part, due to the business uncertainty that COVID had caused.

The benefits of reconstructions can be:

  • Taxation efficiency
  • Asset protection
  • Succession planning
  • Improving the credit worthiness of a business
  • Tidying up the balance sheet which can include removing non trading investment assets
  • Preparing the company for sale, Management Buyout or other exit
  • Incentivising key staff

We work closely with intermediaries such as solicitors, surveyors, bankers, and financial advisers when undertaking reconstruction work. Our network of contacts ensures that we can provide our clients with the necessary expertise required to carry out the work.

David Morrison, Partner and member of EQ Corporate Finance, said,

“The COVID crisis has been an opportunity for clients to take stock of their current position and to make changes to better equip their businesses for the future. The reconstruction work we undertake with our clients is in part due to how closely we work with them, and the appreciation we have for their business and personal goals. We understand their business and work to produce the ideal solution for all involved, for now and for the future.”
