US Corporate Tax Services - London

International Tax

The US tax implications of investments into or from the United States can impact ultimate deal value.

Whether you are investing into or from the United States for the first time or have done so for years, the unique design of our full-service London based US tax practice allows our team to assist with international tax projects of all sizes, levels of complexity, and stages of development. Our location, capabilities, and relationships make us unique.

We have extensive experience with advisory and compliance services for US investors investing overseas and non-US investors into the US, that will allow us to meet your precise expectations in a timely and efficient manner. We serve a wide variety of clients with US tax connections, including:

  • Non-US businesses establishing in the US, existing businesses with significant US operations, or businesses seeking US investors;
  • US owned European/non-US private equity, real estate and other investments located outside the US; and
  • any SEC registrant or company with US shareholders.

Whatever level of investment or strategy you plan to undertake - or have already engaged in - the London based US tax specialists of Deloitte have adopted a true "complete lifecycle" approach and can help you deal with key investment decisions throughout the entire period from initial consideration of tax-efficient structures, to acquisition, financing, repatriation and through to final disposition.

We can also help you navigate planned and unexpected changes to US tax laws and offer bespoke tax advice with regard to US legislative proposals. Given the dynamic nature and complexity of these rules, tax planning is critical.

We are a dedicated team of highly experienced professionals devoted to the complex nature of international US tax engagements, including M&A, deal structuring, refinancing and financial instruments. In addition, we assist with determining tax filing requirements and submissions and preparation of tax provisions for financial statements. We also offer strategies for efficient repatriation of funds to and from the US. 

Private Equity/Real Estate/Hedge Funds

We have demonstrated leading expertise in the tax issues that affect various types of funds and investment manager issues in the European setting. Our client list includes private equity, real estate, mezzanine finance, biotech, and hedge funds displaying a wide variety of investing styles. In this manner, we have adopted a true 'complete life cycle' approach.  

International M&A services

We advise on US tax aspects of corporate M&A transactions. Unlike other teams, our group has the resources and experience to handle the initial deal structuring of the acquistion, restructurings, and post acquisition issues that may arise. We are uniquely positioned to assist with mergers and acquisitions when a non-US parent is acquiring a US target or a target with a US subsidiary by being well placed for US federal and state tax due diligence (both vendor and purchaser).

Financial restructuring

Global companies face challenges in structuring their organisations to meet financial strategies while maintaining efficient tax positions. We have deep expertise in cross-border financing structures. We can provide you with proactive solutions that simplify your financial arrangements while providing significant savings.

Tax accounting - US GAAP

The continuously changing regulations around tax accounting have been a significant focus for tax departments of both public and private companies. The tax environment has increased in risk and complexity, and as a result, there are increased audit documentation standards. We have a team of US GAAP experts within our group who advise large multi-national corporations on US GAAP issues and assist with tax provisions.  

Our difference

We are the largest full-service US international tax advisory team outside of the continental US. Our London location enables us to maintain an open and ongoing dialogue with you, without the many of the impediments caused by differing time zones. It will also facilitate regular information-sharing within your local teams.

We speak a wide range of foreign languages and bring a full range of international tax technical skills to you. The diversity of our team ensures that we have the expertise and practical knowledge to foster an environment of creative development - whether we are designing new cross-border structures or using technology to gather information around the globe more efficiently.

Discover why so many companies rely us and let us help you explore ways to leverage your investments in the United States, Europe and the rest of the world - now and in the future.
