Description


Please be reminded that this is an e-seminar which can be accessed anytime to obtain the CPD hours.

In view of the changing tax and business environment in recent years, corporate groups may consider undertaking international business reorganisation (IBR) projects for a variety of reasons. These may include effecting operational changes, tax-optimised structures, entity rationalisation/ simplification, business separation, pre-IPO tidy-ups, or to accommodate changes in law or tax rules. As IBR projects may involve a number of different jurisdictions and different areas of specialisation (e.g. corporate, finance, intellectual property, employment, etc.), a wide range of tax and legal issues need to be considered to ensure the reorganisation proceeds smoothly.

In this seminar, the speakers, who are experienced tax and legal practitioners, will cover the following:

  • Discuss common tax and legal issues arising in an IBR project
  • Explore mistakes made and consider how to avoid or mitigate them
  • Share some practical examples to demonstrate how IBR projects could be undertaken smoothly

No CPD hours will be granted if you have already attended the live webinar on 7 August 2023.
