Corporate Structure Simplification

Corporate Structure Simplification (CSS) is a strategic process to rationalize a complex group structure by releasing capital, increasing efficiency and reducing financial and administrative burden.

Large corporate groups often have entities within their corporate structure that are surplus to strategic requirements, duplicate activities of other entities or have been dormant for some years. A rationalization process to streamline the structure promotes good corporate governance and can improve attractiveness to potential buyers and investment groups. It can be especially useful in pre- and post-transaction scenarios to improve tax efficiency.

CSS is applicable to all types of businesses, whether owner managed, national or international. Kroll has the expertise, experience and ability to tailor its service to suit your group’s long-term strategic requirements, utilizing restructuring techniques to produce the optimal outcome.
