Getting money out of companies seminar paper


This paper covers the intricacies of distributing or liberating wealth from continuing companies including:

  • the advantages of schemes of arrangement in complex client structures
  • what to do to deal with value shifting traps
  • dealing effectively with possible debt forgiveness implications
  • structuring and optimising capital reductions / buybacks - avoiding assessable dividends
  • capital benefits and dividend streaming implications.
