Corporate Services for every stage of your business lifecycle

Our corporate services encompass a wide range of corporate structures and solutions to see you through every stage of your business lifecycle.

White November Corporate Services has been helping companies and individuals create wealth since 1999. Through our extensive experience we have developed sophisticated, tailor-made solutions and corporate services to benefit a variety of clients from start-ups to multinational corporations.

 

Incorporation & Redomiciliation

The implementation of cross border corporate structures offers many benefits that allow our clients to maintain and enhance their revenue.

Our solutions are largely based on utilising the advantages provided by the current tax legislation in the EU member states Malta and Cyprus.

White November Corporate Services will help you decide on the most beneficial jurisdictions in which to incorporate your company. As residency will be determined by the country in which the company is managed and controlled, White November will develop the most efficient structure, and provide the necessary management and administration services for the jurisdiction.

Redomiciliation of a company registered in one jurisdiction is an effective method of transferring the ownership of assets and liabilities to another jurisdiction without transferring the assets and liabilities to another legal entity, which may create adverse tax consequences. White November can take care of any aspect of your company redomiciliation.

Exit strategies

Exit strategies and solutions are developed when preparing for relocating a business to another country, selling a business, retiring, or planning inheritance.

Most countries apply some type of exit taxation, imposed as capital gains tax on a company’s assets and dividends. However, in its effort to promote free movement and establishment, the EU closely monitors its member states and their ways of imposing tax.

There are several options for a company considering exit strategies. Structuring ownership through a holding company before sale, restructuring the company within the same jurisdiction, relocation to another country that offers tax benefits, and considering retirement abroad are just some of the options that White November can help you to plan for and execute.
