Choosing a business structure is often cited as the most important commercial decision you will make, affecting everything from taxes to personal liability. The choice isn’t always straightforward, which is why new businesses and those undergoing periods of restructuring need to understand a wide range of factors in order to arrive at the right decision.

SA Law provides business structure advice to large and small organisations, assessing their circumstances and commercial objectives in the context of an in-depth understanding of the pros and cons of each option.

In addition to helping you establish a traditional limited company, we offer particular expertise in partnerships and limited liability partnerships (LLP), and can also advise you on joint ventures and mergers and acquisitions.

How we help you

  • Our business structure advice is always tailored to your requirements, so it’s important that we understand your business plans and aspirations.
  • Once established, we can provide as much or as little ongoing advice as you need. We can also help you to periodically review whether your structure and strategy is still working for you. Growth plans and changing economic conditions are just two factors that may mean a different business structure is more suitable for achieving your long-term objectives.

It’s good to bear in mind

  • Tax is an important perspective from which to consider your business structure, and we often work closely with accountants when considering your position.

The Knowledgable, professional and helpful team has a genuine dedication to its clients and delivers an excellent level of service.
