Our capability extends to –
- assisting clients in developing BEE compliance strategies including broad based ESOPs, modified flow through ownership and structured share issues;
- advising on the various BEE ownership structures, the financing of their implementation, attendant tax implications and their ongoing management;
- drafting subscriptions, shareholders’ and related transaction agreements and secretarial documents; and
- incorporating the companies and forming the trusts required to implement the structures.
We have advised on several BEE structuring and restructuring transactions since the inception of the BEE Act and accompanying codes. This area of practice is closely linked with our corporate and commercial department which specialises in commercial structuring, legal corporate finance, contract drafting and tax.
