When undertaking any significant business transactions, companies need to ensure that all potential tax liabilities and planning opportunities are fully considered.
Regardless of the type of transaction —from the acquisition of shares to the transfer of trade, assets or liabilities as part of a restructuring programme —any change can be complex, costly and give rise to new tax exposures.
Businesses can minimise this exposure by carrying out due diligence to manage risk and ensure the transaction is structured in an efficient way. This is particularly important if the transaction is taking place across different jurisdictions.
