Corporate succession

Do you own a company with its headquarters in Spain or have you established business premises there and want to arrange a smooth and tax optimised transition now in order to transfer it to the next generation or people outside of the family? We would be pleased to show you the legal and tax traps in corporate successions in Spain and offer you an integral support in these matters. We draft a succession planning that is tailored to your company and your personal situation and accompany the implementation by formulating the corresponding agreements and last wills. Further we take on the complete communication with local authorities and take care of the proper transaction regarding the corresponding registrations. In the process, all aspects relating to inheritance, family, company and tax law are included in the consulting.

Another focus of consultation is the advising of foundations and their founders. From the set up and recognition of the foundation to the maintenance of charitable status and changes to the statutes and restructuring, we show you your scope for manoeuvre and accompany you from planning to successful implementation.

Together with our colleagues abroad we also advise you thoroughly in international corporate successions.
