Simplification of the corporate structure | Restructuring advice | Services

Large corporate groups often have entities within their corporate structure that are surplus to strategic requirements, duplicate the activities of other entities, or have been inactive for a few years. A streamlining process aimed at streamlining the structure promotes good corporate governance and can improve attractiveness to potential buyers and investment groups. It can be particularly useful in pre- and post-trade scenarios to improve tax efficiency.

CSS applies to all types of businesses, whether owner-managed, national or international. Kroll has the expertise, experience and ability to tailor its service to your group’s long-term strategic needs, using restructuring techniques to produce the optimal result.

Simplicity is the key
