Advised Smart Design Worldwide Case Study


The Commercial Driver

Smart Design Worldwide, a strategic design company based in New York and San Francisco at that time, wanted to expand its operations into Europe. Del Canto Chambers were appointed by Smart Design Worldwide to help determine the best location for their operations in Europe and to determine the tax and legal structure to operate in the EU.

How Del Canto Chambers delivered value

After due consideration, the decision was between Milan and Barcelona and Smart Design Worldwide decided on Spain. We determined the tax and legal structure using a subsidiary and the capital and loan structure to be held in the US. Most employees, some US and Canada employees, came to Spain under the Beck-ham Rule and the company operated in Barcelona, using it successfully as a springboard into Europe for several years until they moved their offices to London.
