The optimal structure protects business holding entities from the day to day trading risks that your business can be involved in.
For instance, consider recent businesses advised:
- We advised a food manufacturing company who’s equipment, leasehold, recipes and other intellectual property was exposed to risk of a vexatious claim from people that purchased (or maybe didn’t purchase) its product through a wholesale client.
- We advised a long-standing family owned engineering company facing a mountainous $800,000+ tax bill. The director was considering borrowing against the family home and critical production equipment to fund its tax bill. Something was clearly wrong.
