This PwC webcast includes an overview of the rules governing the treatment of transaction costs and a discussion of transaction cost issues that frequently arise in today's M&A transactions.
With M&A activity on the rise, an increasing number of companies have to consider the proper federal income tax treatment of costs incurred in connection with those transactions. While the IRS has issued various forms of guidance in an effort to provide clarity, certain types of transactions, such as internal restructurings and cross-border acquisitions, present issues not directly addressed by these rules. As a result, taxpayers must navigate the long history of cases, rulings, and regulations to determine how these transaction costs, which can often be significant, should be taken into account.
Watch our panel of transaction cost specialists as they explore a number of tax issues that can arise in various M&A transactions, including the treatment of success based fees, the allocation of costs in cross-border and private equity transactions, the treatment of costs to facilitate internal restructuring transactions, and planning for the recovery of capitalized costs.
Jeff Brooks, leader of PwC's Transaction Cost practice, along with Jennifer Kennedy and George Manousos, partners in PwC's Washington National Tax Services practice, lead an hour-long discussion that includes an overview of the rules governing the treatment of transaction costs and a discussion of transaction cost issues that frequently arise in today's M&A transactions.
