Brexit overview: your corporate structure and Brexit

30 September 2020
Your corporate structure and Brexit

A limited part of UK company law derives from European law, and the position is unlikely to change dramatically immediately following the end of the transition period.

We can help you navigate uncertainty, mitigate any legal risks and even find ways for your organisation to capitalise through a more efficient corporate structure.

Those circumstances potentially arise when a company is insolvent or where there is a “probability” of an insolvency. We explore below the “trigger” for such a test to apply and its implications.
