M&A tax

When acquiring a business, disposing of a non-core business or completing a merger you need to manage all tax risks (corporate, VAT, customs and social security). We have the necessary in-depth industry knowledge and expertise of specific tax issues inherent to different sectors to make sure that you benefit from robust value-add insights and have a complete understanding of the target you’re looking to acquire or asset you want to sell.

Through tax structuring, we can also help you make sure that future net cash flows are optimised, adding significant value to any transaction.
