Share Structure

Having the right share structure of the business is fundamental to tax and strategic business planning.

We assist our clients in establishing or restructuring share ownership, so that both dividends and sales proceeds are received tax efficiently. By the use of such methods as limited classes of shares, employee shares (which are returned to the company at the end of the holder’s employment) and EMI, we can implement a share structure that will assist the company’s owners to achieve their long term goals. This may be by focusing key employees on a future business sale, either to a third party or to the same key employees via a management buyout.
