Dissolving the Family Company, 3rd edition supplies a detailed review of the complicated legal issues and tax planning problems that occur when dissolving a family company and ensuring that there is a resultant correct and tax-efficient distribution of assets to shareholders.
The proceeds of a successful business about to be dissolved may be needed to fund a new business or as a retirement fund or to allow the former owners to pursue other interests. In all cases the maximisation of after tax income is a prime consideration.
The book covers the latest tax and company legislation and provides a range of useful example and checklists to help practitioners get to the best solution for each of their clients. One of the appendices in particular contains an extended case study based on a real-life situation.
The third edition takes account of changes in company law, including the Companies Act 2006 and changes to tax legislation up to Finance Act 2013.
