Business Structuring

With years of experience in both the regulatory, corporate and legal sectors, our team understand that whether you are a seasoned business owner or a first-time entrepreneur, it is essential that the correct business structure is selected for your personal and business; interests; and circumstances.  In distressed or other changing circumstances, we can examine your existing arrangements and assist efficiently and effectively to secure your position.

We have a strong referral network across all the reputable accounting and advisory houses and we work closely with them to ensure you receive options and all information relating to their legal, risk and tax implications, ensuring you get the best solution.

When choosing Blackwall’s team to assist in choosing the correct business structure, we will advise you across all aspects of the process including but not limited to:

  • Risk appetite and personal liability;
  • partner dynamics;
  • investor relations;
  • administrative and on-going cost structures; and
  • tax effectiveness.

Recent Experience

We frequently act for companies and individuals setting up structures for new or existing businesses.  Often our work involves restructuring a business out of a distressed scenario, sometimes through a formal insolvency process.  We recently completed the loan-to-own purchase by a secured creditor of a substantial software business which was recapitalised in a structure involving external investment and a reverse-vested management incentive scheme.  But we can also help you with simple management arrangements between business partners or shareholders.
