We provide full buy-side and sell-side financial, commercial and tax due diligence services for acquisitions or disposals of individual properties, portfolios and real estate businesses, as well as advice on deal structuring. We can help you to fully understand the key risks relating to the property or business that is being transacted, by assessing and validating assumptions that underlie the deal, giving you a coherent overview of the transaction from a financial and commercial perspective, and providing you with valuable information to support negotiation of the purchase consideration.
Tax services are an integral part of most real estate transactions and can often be the difference between a transaction taking place or not. Especially with large transactions, advance planning is crucial so that the transaction is structured to suit the particular tax positions of the parties involved before the deal is completed. Our licensed tax professionals work with developers, asset managers, pension plans, REITs, insurance companies, banks and many other real estate investors to provide the most beneficial tax structures for their planned transactions.
Our range of tax services includes: transaction due diligence and vendor assistance; international tax structuring; in-country transaction tax consulting; foreign investment and property fund services; mergers and acquisitions, liquidations and reorganizations, but to mention a few. After-tax cash flows are maximized through careful research, planning and compliance. PwC Real Estate has the unsurpassed real estate tax knowledge required to structure all types of transactions or portfolio opportunities.
