Nigel Banerjee discuss recent developments in international corporate procedures, which is explored in detail in International Corporate Procedures
~ This time and money saving resource lets you focus on doing business rather than tracking down information ~International Corporate Procedures,
available as either a print or online subscription, is a country-by-country encyclopaedia of business regulations in over 55 jurisdictions, including all the major industrial, financial and offshore centres worldwide. It draws together the factual and procedural information necessary to make informed decisions about foreign forms of business enterprise.
Before any decision can be made to open an overseas office, set up a cross border joint venture or acquire businesses overseas, companies and their advisers must have a firm grasp of the structure of business regulation in the target territory. Yet finding up-to-date and reliable information of this kind can involve a great deal of time, effort and money, especially if you do not have an office or agent in the territory. All of this effort may be wasted if the legal and taxation regime is found to be wholly unsuitable, International Corporate Procedures
performs this task for you.
