Mergers & Acquisitions services

The management of an M&A process is among the most important and difficult tasks management faces. Our approach to M&A will help you to achieve the objectives of your merger, acquisition or disposal.

Our team assists companies making acquisitions and disposals and undergoing corporate reorganisations, using proven processes and drawing upon expertise from throughout our global network. Our experience covers a wide range of tax services at all stages of the M&A process.

We are focused on identifying and prioritising opportunities across all phases and within all elements of an M&A transaction. 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 tax rate following the transaction.
