Centrum has bolstered its tax team with new hires including two tax directors. 

Centrum advised a client on establishing an international holding company structure to improve the tax efficiency of the group, more so focusing on the dividends allocation from the overseas subsidiaries to the individual shareholders. Centrum assisted the client in restructuring the group companies and organised the overseas subsidiaries under an international holding company. 

Client feedback

“Centrum consulting became our firm’s business partner for financial affairs. We have daily communication in almost all kind of daily matters. Our approach is to be proactive about finance topics and to prevent troubles before they happen. We receive annual reports specifically written for the holding company and the two subsidiaries where the prior year's important matters are listed with a comment, which shows if the matter is solved or still open. We receive monthly audit from Centrum Consulting.”
