Presently weak Indian Rupee and proposed FDI in retail with Tax/Finance director’s globally are showing their interest in BRICS countries as preferred investment. These are likely to push inbound transactions which call for awareness of potential tax risks in emerging market.
Whether you 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 your business, reassessing 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, managing long term sustainable tax rates and cash flows, and ultimately planning ahead for a tax efficient exit.
With the focus of global economic activity rapidly shifting east, the prospect for growth in Asia continues to be strong. Many Asian Financial markets are continuing their path of deregulation.
