Change of ownership or generation of a company

A change of ownership or generation of a company is a challenging stage in the life cycle of the company, and it is advisable to seek external expertise as early as possible. When a change of ownership is done skilfully, it gives the company a new boost and offers opportunities for success. But even a strong company can have big problems if the change of ownership is done carelessly.

Closing a business 

Closing a business is not necessarily dramatic. The entrepreneur may simply have entered a new chapter in life, moved to a different place, found an interesting job or completed a degree. If the business cannot be sold, the operations must be run down as required by law. Different requirements apply to different company forms. If you are planning to dissolve your company, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with these topics to avoid mistakes, a prolonged process and extra costs.
