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 after Brexit. The Government plans to make only minimal amendments to enable legislation in this area to continue to function. However, your structures will need to be reviewed to determine whether they are still fit for purpose and continue to fulfil the right conditions. 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.

This means that, regardless of the date of any pre-existing security, HMRC will rank ahead of the general body of unsecured creditors and floating charge holders in respect of certain taxes (including VAT, PAYE and employee’s NIC but not Corporation Tax).
