Tax Due Diligence

Tax due diligence in a merger or acquisition aims to:

  1. Identify and evaluate tax liabilities with no provisions and which are triggered as a result of the transaction.
  2. Assist in in the transaction/ deal structuring.
  3. Assist in future tax planning and tax incentives.

Tax due diligence initiatives can either be:

  1. Related to the transaction:
  • Mitigating against tax exposures not captured in the purchase price.
  • Planning for tax issues arising from the deal itself
  • Tax efficiency in the deal structuring
  1. Post transaction: tax-efficiency in line with the buyer’s objectives.
