Transactions Tax

Guiding you through a successful transaction

Every transaction has tax implications, whether it’s an acquisition, disposal, refinancing, restructuring or initial public offering.

Through our extensive transactional experience across multiple sectors, strong links with private equity and broad commercial focus, we can help you identify the critical strategic tax considerations and explain them clearly in the context of your transaction and future plans for your business.

Our experience also allows us to ensure that buyside bidders put forward the most tax efficient offer, whilst for sellers we ensure that a practical and clearly laid out plan towards a tax efficient exit puts them in the strongest possible position.

Our Approach

If you’re thinking about a transaction, you’ll naturally have commercial considerations at the front of your mind. By involving us early in discussions, you’ll receive practical and pragmatic tax advice that compliments your commercial objectives.

In many cases, considering the potential tax involved in different options can guide your decisions. There are many taxes to consider and the way these interact can create opportunities and risks. We work with you to grasp those opportunities and minimise the risks.

We work alongside the key stakeholders in your business as well as your lawyers and corporate finance advisers to devise deal structures, carry-out tax due diligence, recommend management incentivisation schemes and much more.

Additionally, we can manage interactions with HMRC by submitting and agreeing upfront clearance applications and reporting paperwork when the deal is complete.
