In today’s global marketplace, business success increasingly requires active trading participation in foreign markets. But international expansion inevitably involves unfamiliar legislation, regulations and processes, as well as creating international legal and tax considerations. Proper groundwork and execution are essential to gain and sustain competitive advantage and successfully manage growth. It is essential to receive advice on:
- The type of company best suited to your commercial purpose
- Arranging the ownership of that company
- Administering the company correctly
- Managing its commercial arrangements
Every case is different, and a high level of expertise is required to ensure that any advice is up-to-date, effective and fully compliant. Failure to understand the region and structure and manage a company correctly could mean that intended objectives and benefits are not achieved or could lead to unintended consequences and liabilities.
With over three decades of experience handling cross-border corporate and commercial matters, Sovereign will assist you to set up the best structure for your business in the Middle East, the Far East or Africa. We also have the necessary expertise to administer and manage your company in line with local laws and regulations.
Kindly note, the presentations at the event will be conducted in English. However, Sovereign will have Spanish speakers present to help assist with translations.
