The tax structuring of a transaction can create or destroy value for investors and tax risk can often be a deal breaker. Working closely with the lead advisers, our transaction tax specialists provide robust structuring advice and solutions. Key areas on which we focus include:
Pre-deal tax structuring: our team assess the business prior to a deal to advise on whether there is a need to reorganise the group structure in order to reduce the tax exposure.
Acquisition vehicle: we advise on the best structure through which to acquire a new business so as to minimise the tax liability
Employee benefits: where organisations are concerned about retaining or rewarding key employees, we work closely with you to structure tax efficient share schemes and incentive plans.
Tax due diligence: working as part of the transaction support team, our tax experts will consider any tax risks, assess the exposure and recommend practical solutions. The team has strong negotiating skills and a good track record in achieving success for clients.
