Asset mix to change with digital disruption

Divest, invest and assess your tax position

[01:28 mins]

Digital disruption causes many legacy assets to lose value and there is a widespread need to invest to capitalise on new, digital-related opportunities. At the same time, many companies are developing new digital value in their supply chains and processes.

Digital disruption - Short fuse, big bang? outlines responses to digital disruption for asset mix including:

  • To remain competitive, businesses may need to divest certain legacy assets such as ‘bricks and mortar’ facilities and some marketing assets
  • New investments in digital-fuelled, higher-growth markets can create shareholder value and help balance business portfolios
  • How a company funds or restructures its business (i.e. with debt or equity) and adjusts the ratio of physical and digital assets may lead to different tax implications.
