M&A tax due diligence

Understanding the tax implications for your deal


Whether it’s a stock or an asset transaction, understanding the tax implications of the proposed deal and determining the optimal tax structure are critical to creating deal value. Each transaction brings its own set of potentially damaging exposures to buyers. Buyers need to determine the combined entity’s:
  • post-close tax position
  • golden parachute impacts
  • federal, state, local and foreign tax exposures
PwC’s M&A tax specialists can identify tax-saving opportunities and help clients assess and identify potential tax exposures and their impacts on a transaction. For more information on our M&A tax service offering, contact Jon Davies or Ian Schachter, or download a pdf of our approach.
