Buy-side Tax Due Diligence
Our tax due diligence will assist you to:
- Understand the tax profile and function of the target
- Identify specific tax risks and opportunities that will be inherited post acquisition so these can feed into your negotiation / pricing strategy, financial modelling and post-completion readiness
- Consider whether an asset or share deal is appropriate based on the current ownership structure, risks and profile
- Consider what protection should be provided in the SPA, and whether warranty and indemnity insurance (or other protection) should be obtained
Scoping is a critical first step in a quality tax due diligence review. There are some fundamental considerations in scoping your tax due diligence for key risk identification, which we can agree up front with you to ensure that our due diligence meets your needs.
