When making an acquisition, disposing of a non-core business or going through a merger, companies need to manage tax risk and ensure future net cash flows are optimised. Tax planning at an early stage can add significant value to every transaction. Such planning is essential to reduce both the actual transaction tax costs and the long-term sustainable effective tax rate following the transaction.
