Mergers and acquisitions tax

Ensure smooth transactions with our mergers and acquisitions tax team

Selling your business or purchasing a new company is likely to be one of the largest transactions in your life. It goes without saying that you need it to go smoothly. Making sure that tax issues don’t adversely affect the outcome is where our mergers and acquisitions tax team can help.

Selling a business

For a sale, we can manage the process from start to finish. We’ll do the advance planning, making sure all relevant tax relief is applied. We’ll help with staff retention and can shape share incentive structures.

We can also assist with tax due diligence, structuring transactions and help with tax warranties and tax covenants. We’ll even help plan out your tax payments and assist with the necessary reporting for HMRC.

Buying a business

If you’re buying a business, we’ll take care the tax due diligence, so your purchase doesn’t bring any unexpected tax liabilities. We can also help structure the acquisition and apply all available tax relief for finance costs, as well as help you plan your financing generally.
