Every transaction has tax implications, whether it’s an acquisition, disposal, merger, demerger, joint venture, refinancing, restructuring or stock exchange transaction such as an IPO.
Our transaction tax professionals advise companies and private equity investors on all tax aspects of their transactions across a wide range of industries and geographies. They help clients negotiate every stage of a deal from inception and initial due diligence, to tax-efficient transaction structuring right through to assistance with the sale and purchase agreement.
Your role will entail helping clients benefit from the potential tax opportunities present in transactions, as well as identifying and reducing inherent tax risk. You’ll work alongside restructuring colleagues to advise companies in financial difficulties, including those in formal insolvency proceedings, on sales of non-core businesses to restore their balance sheets.
