The way your group is structured can have a big impact on your business’s performance. Misaligned entities can result in costly processes, duplication, additional compliance burdens, and can expose your business to risk. It can also mean you end up spending excessive time or money on managing everything.
Restructuring your corporate structure helps you free up time and money, reducing risk, and better sets your company up for growth, acquisitions and divestments.
We can help you rightsize your structure, realise value and enable transformation.
Rationalising your legal entity structure can be complex, particularly as projects require many functions to work together, often with limited experience of similar programmes and often in addition to the day job. So, one thing we do is bring our experience, from previous projects and lessons learnt, to ensure that your Simplification is, well, as simple and ‘painless’ as possible.
We are a team of specialists that will be able to help overcome any obstacles to eliminating an entity, Regardless of our specialism (tax, legal, accounting, operational restructuring, systems integration, etc.) We all have Simplification experience, are in one firm and regularly work together as a team. We also have a global network of in-country Simplification experts that we can reach.
As a team, we like to work closely and collaboratively with our clients and leverage the relationships we already have. This will not only speed things up but make some of the challenges, like information gathering, that much easier.
Whether you have one entity or a thousand, we can help you with the solvent liquidation process to eliminate legal entities. In the last three years we’ve taken more appointments than the other Big 4 and we have a national specialist solvent liquidation team.
When an organisation becomes aware that a subsidiary business, a division, a branch or a brand is under-performing, PwC assists in achieving an optimal recovery of value.
We help to identify the issues and evaluate the options available and agree and assist in implementing the chosen approach (eg sell, fix and sell, or wind-down). We also identify and help manage the risks inherent in the process.
The planned outcome will be an increase in shareholder value by selling, restructuring, or winding down the under-performing business or subsidiary. Our global capabilities, extensive experience, proven methodology and swift service working under pressure of time are our key differentiators.
By integrating Corporate Simplification into your buy and build strategy, we can help you leverage pre completion due diligence and ensure that sufficient comfort is obtained from the seller to enable your newly purchased entities to be eliminated within 6-12 months of hiving up the purchased business.
By running corporate simplification alongside an acquisition, we’ll help you keep your group lean, reduce risk and ensure a smooth transition.
