Economic pressures due to Brexit and COVID-19 have put a strain on government coffers. Robust tax compliance remains as important as it
has ever been and during uncertain economic times tax risk can be even more
prevalent. Market resurgence and a rising level of transactions means
organisations are at a point where tax risks, as well as profitability, are
under increased buyer scrutiny. How can tax controversy help with tax risk
assessment? We’ll discuss:
- The wider tax controversy landscape with HMRC.
- How tax controversy can support M&A processes, e.g. through:
- containing reputational and financial risk with informed diligence stage risk assessment
- handling buy-side post transaction voluntary disclosure to HMRC.
Delve into how tax controversy can support and enhance the transaction process.
