Business Restructuring Solutions

Our business restructuring services are based on immediate solutions to issues that have arisen in your business. Working closely with our team of solicitors and accountants, we will strategically manage your position and find a solution to match your needs.

At C&D Restructure and Taxation Advisory we assist businesses at all stages of their commercial life, whether in the start-up phase or facing the need to restructure due to business difficulties and every situation in between. 

Understanding that things change in the business cycle, a business restructure may be the solution for your situation, whether to achieve asset protection, to improve your taxation position, deal with a business owner change or simply as legislation has altered the landscape.

We also understand the unique nature of a small business restructure and the need to manage complex relationships that can influence decisions and outcomes. Part of our business restructuring services includes stakeholder management and coaching clients through the challenge of managing communication during a small business restructure.

Restructuring your business requires an expert and our team is here to help. Our consultants understand not only the taxation implications but also, where necessary, how to help you navigate the insolvency maze.

Our Process

The restructure process is one in which no situation is like another. Each business is
different and what needs to be done will not follow a simple course. The decision to undertake a restructure is one that can be tough for business owners. We find that often the hardest part is the decision to start the process, rather than the process itself.

Our first conversation involves gaining an understanding of the overall situation and considering the options available. This generally includes collecting as much financial and general information as possible.

Depending upon the time available we will generally come back to you within 24 hours with a game plan and the steps forward. We will attempt to meet with your accountants or bookkeepers during this time, as well as make introductions to any necessary professionals that will help us during the process.

From this point, no business restructure is the same, it will depend on a number of factors and the situation is generally fluid. We attempt to have any business restructure completed within 7 days and depending upon the overall situation, a carefully managed process from there.

When to Begin The Restructure Process

If there are significant business difficulties, the earlier the better. The earlier the restructure process starts, the more likely that a business will be able to trade out of its position and negotiations can start with stakeholders in order to improve the overall picture. In a lot of cases, restructures are left to the last minute, which can be problematic.

Many business owners wait until there is a garnishee notice or a wind-up application before seeking advice about restructuring. This approach to restructure is never successful and the quicker you have a plan, the more likely you will have a business that is able to be protected.
