Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) are a key strategic driver of shareholder value in many companies. In theory, accounting considerations should not affect the decision to buy or sell a business, accounting and reporting concerns often impact many decisions made in the evaluation of a deal, including decisions about how to communicate the transaction to a company’s stakeholders. Important changes in the accounting for M&A transactions have occurred. Also when we are making an acquisition, disposing of a business, going through a merger, entering into a Joint venture, planning for IPO, or for a public to private transaction, restructuring the business, re-assessing management incentive plans or refinancing, tax risks need to be managed and net cash flows optimized. Tax planning at an early stage can add significant value to every transaction, whether by minimizing transaction tax costs or managing long term sustainable tax rates and cash flows.
