Mrs A owns comany B and asset C which is used by B Ltd.
She is contacting to sell asset C and half of the undertaking of B limited.
She will then continue to operate the remaining undertaking of B Limited.
Sale proceeds from the part share of B limiteds undertaking are not material, but the proceeds for asset C are, and we wish to secure entrepreners relief.
We can only obtain entrepreners relief if there s a linked disposal if shares in B Limited.
Choices seem to be:
1 - transfer the retained undertakings of B limited to NewCo, and close B down. Trade via NewCo.
2 - Mrs A sells shares in B Limited to a holding company HoldCo, and continues to trade B Limited with an indirect shareholding.
2 is infinitely more preferable as it avoids the hassle factor of closing B Limited down.
However, to me it seems to easy!
