About this webinar

Join me for this 45-minute conversion on whether, why, and how to set up and efficiently manage company subsidiaries. I’m Airbase CFO, Aneal Vallurupalli, and I’ll be joined by two of my amazing ex-colleagues from Mattermost. Tim Quock is VP Finance, who began his career at PwC, where he consulted with some of the largest privately held companies on their global operations. Jamie Hurewitz is Corporate Counsel with 15 years’ experience advising companies on a broad array of legal issues.   

My focus will be on the reasons and the factors that drive the establishment of new legal entities, and what is involved in setting them up. We’ll delve into the accounting and operational implications of having multi-subsidiaries, and how to find the right systems to simplify the ongoing accounting and operational challenges that they generate. I’ll ask about the rise of remote teams and their impact on international subsidiaries, and how to consider the additional burden of currency risk they entail. 

Going national and even global is no longer the purview of large enterprise companies. Even small to mid-market companies confront the challenges of complex legal and accounting structures as we expand our footprint domestically and internationally. Come with your questions and we’ll figure this out together.
