Transaction Tax

"What are the tax implications of my organization’s transaction?"

Every transaction has tax implications, whether it’s an acquisition or disposal; refinancing or restructuring; or even an initial public offering. Understanding and planning for these implications is essential for mitigating transaction risks and costs, protecting corporate reputation, enhancing opportunity within the deal and uncovering crucial negotiation insights.

By combining diverse cross-border transaction experience with local tax knowledge across a broad range of industry sectors, we help you make informed decisions and navigate the implications of your transaction.

Our local teams employ a consistent approach globally to provide you with a coordinated understanding of the relevant jurisdictional and multi-disciplinary tax issues. And we can suggest structuring alternatives to achieve your commercial objectives, promote exit readiness and help improve prospective earnings or cash flows – raising opportunities for improved returns on your investment.
