  • Preparing an international asset transfer operation
    Preparing an international asset transfer operation
    A global leader in heavy industry wants to cut the costs of its support functions and improve the quality of its internal control and economic piloting. It launches a project to implement shared financial services at the national level, and thus gather teams of 100 to 150 employees on one site (they were previously spread on multiple locations). The WillBe Group team relies on its extensive knowledge of complex accounting and financial processes. It pilots the deployment of the shared financial services and leverages its experience of conducting complex transformation projects in international environments. Thanks to WillBe Group's intervention, in spite of the difficult social context, the mobilization around the project is facilitated and the main organizational and cultural challenges are overcome.

    An international group is considering the transfer of an asset (software) held by an American company and valued at several millions of euros. It is to be transferred to a French entity. The operation does not just entail strategic, financial and operational complexity. It also involves multiple European stakeholders (shareholders, customers…). WillBe Group is tasked with defining an economic and contractual model for the operation:

    • to demonstrate the strategic, economic and business benefits of the operation;
    • to define the possible legal, financial and tax options;
    • to uncover an economic model that can be beneficial to all the legal entities involved;
    • to lay out the sound principles of effective governance.

    Our team designs and models the scenarios compatible with strategic orientation and social acceptability. The decision to transfer the asset is taken within three months and makes it possible to create new synergies within the group and improve quality of customer service.

  • Optimizing local tax constraints

    Optimizing local tax constraints

    The subsidiary of a global aeronautics leader wants to cut its costs. It carries out an ambitious restructuring plan that covers all corporate dimensions.

    The tax dimension is identified as a possible source of savings, in particular when it comes to local taxes that are based on real-estate value. For fear of the complexity of tax rules, most companies do not look closely at the way these local taxes are calculated.

    The WillBe Group team has forged a valuable expertise in tax optimization. Thus it is asked to look for possible sources of savings. It focuses on obtaining the correction of the tax bases and soliciting tax credits for past years. The results obtained are spectacular: nearly 1 million euros extra profits and a significant recurring gain thanks to the reduction of tax bases.
