The M&A market is becoming increasingly complex and more competitive as more international investors are seeking to invest abroad. With the international dimension underpinning many Swiss transactions, the tax risks and opportunities have increased significantly. Proactive tax advice is imperative to the successful planning, implementation and exit strategy of an M&A transaction.
Often M&A transactions offer the companies involved an opportunity to review their structure from a tax point of view. Our approach when assisting on transactions is to combine the deep transaction experience of our tax team, with the existing specialist industry and multi-disciplinary skills within the combined Swiss/UK practice. Through our global network, we are in a position to provide optimal global solutions for international transactions. This helps us guide our clients through all phases of the transaction process in order to mitigate tax risks and to identify tax opportunities.
