Shortly after the new CFO joined this family-owned business in the media industry, he determined that the quality of advice that the company was receiving was not helping the company reach its goals. The CFO had previously formed a strong and positive relationship with PwC while at his former company therefore reached out to us again
Our cross line of service team held a discovery meeting with ownership and executives to develop a thorough understanding of the company. The primary focus of the initial work was international tax consulting via select professionals from our international tax desk. We assisted the company by helping them understand the business and tax nuances of each country they had targeted for growth. We also provided advice about efficient tax structures, a joint business relationship opportunities in non-US markets, as well as helped them to understand important aspects of a joint-business relationship
As a result of this work, the company relies on PwC as its full service professional services provider where we are providing corporate audit and tax services as well as personal tax consulting to the owners. Furthermore, the company is better prepared as it explores new markets and stands poised to achieve its growth goals.
A multinational industrial products company that was a leader in providing protective solutions had been a longtime PwC tax client in their home country. Seeking to conduct an acquisition in the US, the multinational engaged PwC US for help in evaluating a acquisition target.
PwC provided financial and tax due diligence, and brought in tax professionals to identify tax exposures, and to evaluate how the deal should be structured so that our client could achieve maximum tax benefits.
Our work led to us helping our client consummate the acquisition. We then expanded our tax team to include international tax experts to assist with structuring the transaction through debt to enable the multinational to maximize their US tax benefits. We provided further tax optimization by uncovering an unrelated tax-deductible asset that resulted in an immediate cash tax savings of $1.5 million for our client.
