Tax Efficient Entity Rationalisation

Each country has its own unique requirements, costs and timelines when it comes to winding down a legal entity. Failure to understand and follow these requirements can lead to costly delays, penalties and other negative consequences. It may even hamper your ability to conduct business in that country in the future.​​

At Vistra, we have deep experience in winding down operations in dozens of countries, and we can help you navigate the legal and tax-entity termination rules of virtually any jurisdiction. If you’re considering winding down, we can:​

  • Conduct a legal-entity rationalisation to determine if all your legal entities are necessary and to promote efficiencies in your corporate legal structure​
  • Provide information and advice related to your wind-down options based on entity types and countries involved ​
  • Manage the tax clearance application and tax deregistration processes ​
  • Manage the entity wind-down application process ​
  • Repatriate your offshore profits and assets in a tax-efficient way, including conducting an intra-group balance rationalisation.​

With our help, you can be sure to avoid delays in deregistration and possible additional compliance obligations that can come from unfamiliarity with local laws and practices. ​

You'll achieve a clean balance sheet before you wind down, unlocking previously trapped cash and assets while reducing tax leakage. And you'll emerge with an optimal corporate structure to reduce your compliance and maintenance costs.

19 January 2023: Vistra, one of the world’s leading Fund and Corporate Service providers, announces today that Canyon CTS ('Canyon') has rebranded to Vistra.
Loans have traditionally been the domain of commercial banks, but the financial crisis of 2008 made loans a riskier investment. New regulatory and reporting requirements emerged, making it more expensive for banks to offer loans to the private sector. As a result, banks began offering loans mostly to large public enterprises.
After a period of robust growth, companies typically face an environment of economic slowdown and rising interest rates. In that situation, they naturally look to cut costs, often through staff reductions. While this is a common area to turn for savings, the process of reducing staff is often painful and comes with underlying risks. To minimize those risks, multinational employers must understand the consequences of employee layoffs and terminations, including the need to comply with applicable laws in all countries of operation.
