Planning Using a Holding Company

It is a common business succession practice to transfer a company’s shares to a holding company owned by a successor. BDO Tax Co. supports clients’ succession planning using a general incorporated association and a general incorporated foundation as a holding company in addition to a stock company and a limited liability company.

In addition, there are cases when succession planning is made using a company outside Japan as a holding company to be line with company’s global expansion. For clients wanting to use an overseas company as a holding company, we provide support for the establishment of a holding company in cooperation with BDO offices in each country. Furthermore, we provide multifaceted advice on corporate tax, income tax, and gift tax including the possibility of tax haven taxation in Japan. (Please refer to the international tax service section.)

For post-establishment support, please refer to the tax service section.
