Business separations – changing challenges into opportunities

As business units and fundaments often are strongly intertwined within and throughout legal structures, the legal aspects of business carve-outs should not be underestimated, but neither should all the upsides, possibilities and opportunities that it can bring. Strengthened by our collaboration with other EY Tax expertises, our Corporate Restructuring team has unmatched expertise when it comes to any type of business separation.

Seamless and efficient, from start to finish

Our team helps you divest business units efficiently and seamlessly, from start to finish – from the development of a sound carve-out plan to implementation, we assist you with all facets, such as:

  • identifying and handling of all legal aspects and their implications and complications, globally
  • incorporating and moving legal entities
  • transferring assets domestically and cross-border
