Most companies will face one or more transactions in their lifetime. This might be an acquisition or a merger, a significant investment, the departure of a shareholder, or a complete sale to a third party. Alternatively, a single entity may be spun out or demerged from the group. All of these transactions will have associated tax consequences, which may affect the company or key shareholders. This is where we step in.
A transaction can be complex, and we take care to demonstrate attention to detail when making decisions. Taking advice at the right time is key to avoiding tax inefficiencies for the parties involved, or at worst, discovering issues late in the day which prevent the transaction occurring. If you anticipate a transaction in the future, it is worth reviewing the tax position of the company to resolve any potential issues before they become critical.
