Mergers & Acquisitions Tax Services

Tax planning needs to be contemplated from the outset of any transaction to ensure organizations and their owners are positioned to unlock value and mitigate tax risk.

Implementation of an appropriate tax plan well prior to a deal will often yield the best results, which can be diminished or unavailable if delayed. Similarly, historical tax risks should be remedied in advance of M&A activities to avoid any surprises that may arise during the diligence process.

Having an experienced tax advisor on your side will allow you to move forward with confidence.

We understand that the continually shifting landscape of taxation can be difficult to navigate. As M&A processes continue to be challenged with shorter timelines for execution, you need access to timely advice in each phase of the deal. Tax due diligence, acquisition structuring and tax modeling should be prioritized in parallel with critical non-tax decision-making drivers.

Combining their experience, understanding of the strategic priorities and deep knowledge of the tax landscape with your business objectives, our professionals deliver services that support your overall M&A strategy.

We regularly advise owner-managed businesses, corporate investors and private equity investors on domestic and cross-border transactions with the following range of services:

  • Tax due diligence
  • Tax modelling
  • Vendor assistance
  • Post-closing tax matters and integration support
  • Specialty M&A tax services
