How can we help you?

How you structure your business as you expand globally is a critical question. The right structure will protect your assets, improve your currency position, support your business operations, facilitate future business expansion and changes, and optimise your overall tax rate. Trying to unscramble a sub-optimal structure entered into in haste or without full consideration of relevant facts is complex and expensive, so it’s important to plan upfront.

Structuring is both a science and an art – this is our specialist area of expertise. Regan van Rooy is an international tax and structuring advisory firm focussing on Africa. Our main African offices are in South Africa and Mauritius, and we can help you with any international tax or structuring query.

We have used Regan van Rooy for a number of tax advisory services and have found the RvR team insightful, responsive, and easy to work with. Not only were they quick to understand our position and needs, but they also explained the process and possible solutions in a constructive and helpful manner and has brought a thoughtful depth of knowledge and experience to the advice and solutions offered. RvR newsletter/advisories are informative and provide practical advice on doing business in Africa – often with an uncanny alignment with issues that ASPI is dealing with in its day-to-day operations.

Derek Szabo - Signalhill Products

Regan van Rooy advised on the optimal business structure for the Sustainabuild Group
pertaining to intellectual property, corporate structure to source capital and servicing customers across several African jurisdictions. We also needed to consider exchange control and tax and transfer pricing, with a roadmap to scale over time. The advice and service we received from RvR was thorough, well presented and of great value, particularly given the complexity of the brief. We highly recommend RvR as leaders in their field of international tax, structuring and transfer pricing. And their regular newsletters are always relevant, insightful and enjoyable!
