Intercompany agreements: legal support options for corporates and their tax advisers

This article appears in the September issue of our International Corporate Structures Newsletter.

LCN Legal is one of the very few independent law firms with a dedicated focus on helping multinational groups to put in place effective intercompany agreements. Because we don’t give tax or transfer pricing advice, we are able to work collaboratively with corporates and their existing internal or external tax teams to get the job done as smoothly as possible.

We offer three levels of support:

  • Toolkits of tried and tested template intercompany agreements, with telephone support from senior lawyers who specialise in this area. Our templates provide the peace of mind of working from documents which have been specifically created for the purpose and refined over a number of years, rather than hand-me-downs or freebies with no assurance of quality or relevance
  • Template agreements tailored for each applicable group, using our standard documents and following a streamlined procedure to minimise the time spent by clients and their tax advisers to finalise the documents
  • Full service legal support, including aligning the legal design of intercompany agreements with regulatory, corporate governance and risk objectives, hands-on support with due diligence and implementation, and assistance with setting up ongoing processes and reviews of intercompany agreements and the corporate structures to which they relate
