Overview

This practical seminar reviews key provisions of the new Companies Act bearing upon share transactions, the sale of businesses, take-overs, mergers and amalgamations and business rescues. The analysis of the provisions of the new Companies Act is coupled with an analysis of the tax consequences of related corporate manoeuvres.

The seminar sets out to impart 'billable knowledge' - techniques which will enable professionals to maximise their earning potential and value proposition.

A highlight of the programme is a close analysis of section 40 of the new Companies Act, dealing with the issue of partly paid shares. The analysis will demonstrate how partly paid shares lend themselves ideally to the establishment of a new generation of employee share schemes, and Black Economic Empowerment transactions. This seminar promises to provide delegates with guaranteed billable knowledge!

Course content:

The course coverage will include:

  • general principles regarding the issue of shares;
  • the tax treatment of preference shares, hybrid debt instruments, the variation of share rights and share buy-backs;
  • the issue of partly paid shares;
  • using partly paid shares to develop a new generation of employee share schemes;
  • business sales;
  • take-overs;
  • the deductibility of interest on borrowings incurred to fund a take-over;
  • intra-group transactions; and
  • business rescues.

 

Who should attend

The seminar will offer valuable insights to lawyers, accountants and tax practitioners servicing the corporate sector.
