Legal Structures Abroad
We can assist our clients in choosing the most suitable and tax-effective international corporate structures.
Here is a general overview of the various possible structures.
The structure of a Representative Office allows you to be present on the ground and engage in all promotional activities.
A Branch Office allows core activities and sales, in addition to promotional activities. It is not, however, a legal entity by itself, which makes the parent company subject to any legal obligations.
The Subsidiary Office is an entirely separate legal entity, created specifically for business overseas. It is a good option for the long run, as it is usually more tax efficient and it forms a legal layer of protection between itself and the parent company.
A Joint Venture is a separate legal entity that requires a joint investment with a local company. It is not a permanent structure and can be dissolved if the original agreements between the two companies involved are no longer in effect.
We can support you with the incorporation process, which begins once you’ve selected the most suitable legal structure. This process varies somewhat between jurisdictions, but the general elements are often the same. Our main services include:
We form strong, trusted connections with our clients, based on a deep understanding of their professional worlds, drawn from our extensive experience of working in those same worlds - across finance, structuring, law, and accounting.
