Sustainable corporate success requires a high degree of flexibility and adaptability to changing economic conditions. A company can only exist successfully in the long term if economic developments and framework conditions are actively taken into account and necessary adjustments are made to these changes. The decisions made in the past regarding the legal form and structure of the company have to be constantly adjusted.

In addition to changed framework conditions, the reasons for reorganization and restructuring can be diverse: be it in the context of the preparation of an upcoming acquisition or sale of an investment or company (M&A), in advance of an IPO, for the purpose of tax optimization of a group structure or in advance the participation of external investors.

In addition to the corporate law requirements for a reorganization and restructuring, accounting law and tax implications must also be taken into account. From a tax point of view, inadequately planned restructuring can lead to the loss of existing loss carryforwards or to the disclosure of hidden reserves. In addition, real estate transfer tax implications must also be examined. In the case of restructuring that is not subject to income tax, retention periods may also have to be observed. In this respect, restructuring and transformation represent complex processes that require intensive and coordinated preparation.
