Restructuring for Asset Protection and Business Succession
Published on 13 Sep 2005
| Took place at Hilton Hotel, Brisbane
Australian society is becoming more litigious and as a result many businesses both small and large are focusing on asset protection issues and the options available.
A key constraint for implementing asset protection strategies is the tax and stamp duty cost of restructuring.
In addition, more and more of Australia's 'baby boomers' are looking towards retirement in circumstances where many of those baby boomers intend to fund retirement by selling or otherwise dealing with the ownership of their businesses. Significant issues arise for advisors seeking to balance how to sell businesses in a tax effective manner for the owner, while still ensuring the arrangements are commercially acceptable to the purchaser.
In many cases, there is the added complication of retention strategies that have been implemented for existing owners and employees which often include equity interests in the business.
This seminar addressed the tax and stamp duty issues associated with restructuring companies for business succession and asset protection with a particular focus on managing the above issues and providing solutions that minimise the tax and stamp duty costs.
