~ 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.
The perfect resource for:
- Corporate lawyers
- Finance lawyers
- Compliance departments
- Company secretarial departments
- Business Advisers - offshore jurisdictions
International Corporate Procedures provides directly comparable information in a standardised format set out country by country covering over 55 jurisdictions
- Detailed information on how to form a company including the timescales, costs and documentation required. In addition specific rules relating to partnerships, branches and joint ventures are covered for each jurisdiction.
- Key company law points on liabilities of directors, D&O insurance, local shareholding requirements, classes of shares permitted, rules for shareholder meetings, registration of charges, liabilities for subsidiary debts, fees for permits and licences, rules on borrowing and charging of assets and M&A controls.
- The different types of entities including partnerships, branches and joint ventures
