M&A Tax Services

Transactions and group restructurings are an indispensable part of any corporate strategy and can vary in degrees of magnitude. The feature they have in common is that they enable the implementation of corporate objectives and adaptation to the complex and dynamic competitive environment. However, because of their considerable complexity, they frequently represent a major challenge for the company's management. This comprises especially tax issues in connection with the acquisition of companies as well as mergers, splits and strategic alliances.

Your RSM Tax Experts will discover (historical) tax exposures in the target and help you to manage the resulting tax consequences. In addition, we will provide you with conceptual support in connection with the underlying share purchase agreement (SPA), to secure effective tax clauses, guarantees and indemnifications for your advantage. As part of a strategic tax planning, we will also support you with the effective integration of the target in your existing corporate structure or help you with the implementation of a new investment structure.

The services of our dedicated M&A Tax-Team include:

  • Analysis of the current tax status and development of tailor made tax concepts
  • Preparation of Buy Side Tax Fact Books and Information Memorandums
