Restructuring

Contacts: Will Marryat, Ben Wilson

Any restructure of a business requires considered and clear advice and planning. We have the experience and capability to provide that.

Restructuring involves many of the same considerations as an arms-length transaction, and will often be undertaken in anticipation of a merger or acquisition, or in conjunction with succession planning advice.

We assist in planning and implementing internal restructures of businesses and companies, whether through share restructures or transferring assets.

It is essential to plan not only for the immediate arrangements, but also for potential future problems. We have an experienced eye on the tax consequences, whether immediate or potential.

We have conducted a multi-million dollar restructuring of one of South Australia's largest agri-businesses.

We have advised a major retirement village operator in relation to conversion from an incorporated association into a company limited by guarantee.

We have advised a major listed public company on the tax consequences of its restructuring and conducted litigation against the ATO on its behalf.

We have the experience and knowledge of property, corporate law and tax issues to manage the process.
