As International trade continues to expand, a recent IOD survey shows that almost a third of UK companies are considering moving some operations abroad with many businesses setting up additional companies in the EU or moving their headquarters to an EU country.

It is essential that advice is taken before entering into new territories to ensure the optimum structure is achieved from both a legal and tax perspective. Smith Cooper are a member of the international alliance, Alliott Group. Through this alliance we have organised for our Dutch international partners, VMBS Advocaten, and our German partners, Audalis, to present a session on ‘Your gateway to Europe: Doing Business in the Netherlands or Germany”.

We’d therefore like to invite you to our special breakfast seminar, taking place at the Thinktank in Birmingham on 7th June at 8:30am.

We will cover:

  • Cross-border acquisitions
  • Benefits of having a holding company or subsidiary in the Netherlands/Germany
  • Joint venture possibilities

All from both a legal and tax perspective.

Whether you are considering relocation, a joint venture, or are interested in contingency planning, our expert colleagues are well equipped to answer your questions and provide guidance.

You’re welcome to bring colleagues, clients and friends to the event – please just let us know when you register. To RSVP, or if you have any queries please contact
