Succession Planning and Restructuring

Fabritius Tengnagel & Heine give advice on succession planning in family run businesses, whether they are run as personal operations or as companies. Succession planning can also be carried out with regard to other than family members, e.g. the company’s employees.

Implementation of succession planning often requires planning of a more long-term nature. It could be necessary with a changed company structure (restructuring) on financial, tax related and personal grounds. The restructuring could e.g. relate to separation and consolidation of businesses, establishment of holding companies, subsidiaries and funds.

The purpose of planned succession planning and if necessary, restructuring is often that successors or others can take over the company in a form that is appropriate to their needs and means.

We take care of a joint solution, where both financial and personal matters are coordinated and discussed with the client, including value optimisation in used of e.g. tax free company reorganisation, tax free splits or other tax free forms of restructuring.

Restructuring could also be relevant in situations in which a company wishes to be sold to a third party. Often a higher price can be achieved for a company, which appears to be structured and lean, it is important that the values should be brought to the fore before it can be assessed and sold.
