Corporate group structure realignment and rationalization has become a key C-Suite topic. Covid-19 not only required businesses to redesign their supply chains, but also to rethink their core activities leading to increased M&A activity, carve-outs and disposals. All of these events have a structural impact. In addition, new tax and regulatory requirements have accelerated the need for alignment of business and tax structures.
In light of the above, we were pleased to collaborate with Henley & Partners on a recent webinar which took place on Thursday, 10 February 2022. The aim of the session was to provide business owners, executives, entrepreneurs, and investors with insight into the latest trends in remote working, corporate relocation, and investment migration options.
