Restructuring Consulting:

Increasing market globalisation permanently challenges internationally operating companies to adapt their legal group structure to the company's performance and to execute restructuring projects affecting their presence in foreign countries as well. Additionally, mergers, the acquisition of companies or focussing on their own core competence, all require the investment or disinvestment of company assets.

  • tax optimised change of corporate forms of foreign companies. For example, demergers or cross-border mergers.
  • asset transfers
  • tax optimised structure for company sales and their valuation
  • advice on cross-border relocation of functions or moving in taxation

iSP Global Tax offers an indicative first assessment of the tax circumstances abroad, coordinates the project and arranges collaboration with foreign professional services providers. In parallel, we check the tax consequences of the foreign transaction steps in relation to German taxation.
