With more than 20 years experience supporting the establishment of companies in the UK and Spain, End2End has an in-depth knowledge of how to make life simple for a small to medium size enterprise (SME). We are proud to have been able to provide structuring solutions that have contributed to the success of many businesses. More specifically, we work with the following guiding principles:
- Identify customer needs and fully understand not only how their business works, but also how best it can evolve.
- Provide relevant options and facilitate strategic choices.
- Simplify the operating structure so that owners can understand it and work with it.
The tax and regulatory environment is continually evolving across borders so we ensure your structure is fully optimized to take advantage of all possible benefits, while also mitigating against any new or unexpected compliance issues.
For example, one of our clients is a multinational beauty products company who wanted to set up a European Hub in Spain as part of a five-year expansion plan. The first issue the company faced was whether to establish a permanent presence, or simply an international sales office. In this particular instance, after reviewing their business model and considering all appropriate solutions, we advised the former.
We were then able to help the company obtain work permits for non-European senior staff members and establish systems to deal with importation conditions and cross border VAT requirements for non EU countries.
Giving you specialist knowledge
We then assisted the company comply with structural constraints from their own holding company, such as transfer pricing, group audit requirements, and internal control procedures.
We managed this process from the initial company formation in Spain, right through to operational success, and whilst the implementation of End2End’s strategy was necessarily time consuming, it proved to be a robust solution which met internal audit conditions and the external conditions laid out by Delloitte and and Touche.
We subsequently assisted in rolling out the hub to cover a number of European countries and the company is now trading successfully across Europe.
Whilst this example isn’t necessarily typical of all the companies we have supported in this area, there a significant number of crossover issues which relate to the majority of new entrants.
By creating a range of services specifically tailored to a client’s needs, End2End has also been successful in bringing US, Israeli and UK companies into the Spanish market.
We hold specialist knowledge in this area particular in relation to the legal structure best suited to the specific holding company.
In the event the venture is small in nature, or will not hire administrative staff in the near term, we offer back office services to manage all the company’s administration needs.
