Understanding the Importance of Having the Correct Legal Structure

before Raising Capital

One of the first — and most important — decisions business owners make is choosing the correct type of business entity for their company. The chosen structure can have long lasting tax and legal consequences, so it is paramount to get it right.

For the majority of investments the legal structure will not reflect the underlying investment. It can be viewed as a tool employed to allow multiple investors to invest in the underlying investment.  The legal structure used, and in which country it is based, can have many implications for investors.

 

These include what (if any) tax is payable, what fees are charged and what legal recourse is available should the investment fail. For example, a real estate investment can be structured as a limited partnership, direct partial ownership, corporate bond or membership of a company limited by guarantee. Each of these structures may provide different security and offer different returns, despite the underlying asset being exactly the same.
