TAX

Maximising tax efficiency and simplicity is no easy task, but Clemco’s corporate tax team can help you develop the right approach for your business – whatever its size, sector or stage of growth.

You might represent a quoted international group or an owner-managed business. Your corporate tax needs could range from routine annual compliance to specialist advice to support your business plans, strategies and transactions. That’s why we tailor our service according to your requirements,sector and business circumstances.

There will be immediate tactical decisions and complicated strategic considerations, anticipating the eventual impact of taxation on transaction costs and investment decisions.

To retain control, it’s crucial you have the information that allows you to identify any issues in good time and the expert advice that will enable you to factor-in practical measures.

Clemco Consult help you plan a tax-efficient approach to every aspect of your business, one that sees the whole picture and works with you to protect the interests of your stakeholders.

We look after the interests of corporate entities at every stage of their life-cycle:

  •  start-ups;
  •  expansion and investment;
  •  acquisitions and disposals;
  •  raising finance/capital markets; and
  •  succession planning.

We cover all matters related to the compliance, transaction support and planning issues in your sector. Our tax teams have extensive experience in handling all types of communications and negotiations with SARS.

Large and international businesses are under increased scrutiny to ensure they pay the right amount of tax. Ensuring you comply with tax rules in all the countries in which you operate is essential as any perceived ‘avoidance’ could come under fire.

Our compliance service gives you assurance that your tax compliance obligations are being effectively managed, whilst adding value into the process to manage tax risks and effective tax rates.

We have a wide range of experience providing large international businesses with added-value tax compliance services. By working closely with you from the start, to ensure we understand your needs, we will create a successful compliance process that is tailored to you.

This may include:

  • assistance with the development of an overall group tax strategy;
  • development of a rolling agenda tracking the key tax risks and opportunities;
  • bespoke report templates to assist with compliance reviews, such as controlled foreign companies, world wide debt cap and group planning tools;
  • assistance with group tax reporting, tailored to your needs;

We can also ensure that the process takes into consideration the impact on other taxes such as VAT, customs duties and payroll taxes.

Local knowledge on a global scale

We link with our partners to provide you with local knowledge on a global scale.

You’ll have many issues to consider when deciding whether to trade as an unincorporated business or to incorporate, and in what entity type. The best arrangement for your needs may involve takeovers, mergers, demergers, partitions, and/or other reorganisations.

For example, setting up and running a company involves more formalities than operating a partnership, but generally provide greater flexibility. For example, they offer a means of deferring the income tax of the owners if profits are retained in the company.

Clemco Consult can help you to decide what form of ownership vehicle to use for the activities you intend to carry on.

Company reorganisations are undertaken for many different reasons. The primary driver is usually to achieve commercial objectives, but tax efficiency is always an important consideration. For example, tax is likely to influence the method of effecting the transaction whether you are:

  • changing your share structure;
  • transferring assets within a group;
  • acquiring or selling a subsidiary;
  • splitting the business; and
  • making a large one-off return of value to shareholders.

We can provide an overview of the key tax issues, set out a practical solution that achieves your commercial objectives, and ensure that you carry out the reorganisation without paying unnecessary tax.
