Legal Entity Rationalization (LER)
Successful companies have the tendency to expand, e.g. through the acquisition of other companies. Each acquisition not only increases the number of business entities, but also the complexity of the company structure. From a commercial point of view, it is generally useful to serve the market from either one or a limited number of entities in a given country. And also from a cost and risk management perspective, it is worth limiting the number of entities in the group.
Reducing the number of entities leads to considerable cost savings. The average annual costs of running a company are rarely less than EUR 25,000. For example, the annual ‘cash out’ costs of the numerous obligatory reports, licenses and registrations, but also ‘internal’ expenses incurred for IT, administration and management.
Advantages of Legal Entity Rationalization
- Operating as a unified entity in the market
- Simplification and acceleration of internal and external reporting processes
- Improved insight
- Reduction of annual costs
LER projects are multidisciplinary. This is because the elimination of entities may trigger movements in employees, activities and financial streams, and adjustments to IT systems. Thanks to our worldwide network and our tax and legal experience with LER projects, we have LER specialists at our disposal in many countries. Want to know more about LER?
