Parties to a proposed merger or acquisition (M&A) need to be confident that they understood the tax implications of the transaction before the deal closes, and have a clear roadmap to execute post-merger tax strategies. Deloitte’s M&A tax due diligence and transaction tax structuring teams help buyers, sellers and a range of financial institutions and private investors understand current and future tax structuring options, avoid surprises and resolve dealbreakers by thoroughly assessing tax liabilities, identifying potential risks, and comparing alternative deal structures that could meet each parties’ expectations.
A comprehensive approach to M&A tax due diligence likely includes a discussion of how M&A transaction tax structuring benefits all parties. Deloitte teams work with you to dissect tax considerations in M&A transactions and determine which tax structures could support your business strategies, strengthen cash flows, and mitigate tax risks. Particularly now when the global tax landscape is populated with new regulations, M&A transactions that span borders should include an experienced, cross-disciplinary team of financial, accounting, legal, and tax professionals—all of which Deloitte can provide.
