Corporate liaison services
When companies set up a branch office or legal entity abroad, they usually have an internal officer looking after their affairs. Although these officers are generally well informed about the legal, tax and accounting procedures in the homeland, they are often not fully up to speed with all the local regulations and procedures abroad.
Our corporate liaison service can advise these officers, if and when needed, on our local legislation and procedures so that they become familiar with them. This service is provided on demand, meaning that we only step in when we’re needed.
Our involvement is often requested when companies need the assistance of specialized lawyers, tax advisors or other consultants, but do not know who to engage or what specific questions to ask. Depending on the issue at hand, a very seasoned specialist may be needed, whereas in less demanding situations a generalist will do. This is where we can help, by recommending the most suitable (and not necessarily the most expensive) specialist from our extensive network of advisors.
Many companies use our services to ensure that they comply with local legislation and remain in good legal standing, whereas others tend to use us as a sounding board.
