Mergers & Acquisitions


Businesses are constantly evolving and every new situation brings new challenges. We can work with you and the PwC network of firms closely to create an integrated, customised solution for all aspects of your reorganization, M&As, spin-offs, sales and IPOs – for investment firms, multinational groups or businesses undergoing a once-in-a-lifetime change. We are with you from the planning stage, through implementation, until the project is complete.

By identifying opportunities, optimising financial structuring, and managing risk at every stage, we help you make sure the synergy of your vision is not disrupted by unforeseen tax costs or surprises.

Our local experience, strong international network and commercial focus allows us to add real value to transactions and to your company.

Due diligence

We can undertake Slovak or foreign due diligence, identify critical tax risks and issue a report to meet your needs. Due diligence is often performed in phases to better manage the risks and cost. Our due diligence teams have experience with covering broad areas of expertise, i.e. corporate income tax, transfer pricing, VAT, payroll taxes, customs, industry specific taxes and financial, legal, HC and regulatory issues. During this phase, we also collect information for tax structuring.

Transaction tax structuring

We advise on a flexible acquisition and financing structure for new investments to meet the needs of the stakeholders in a transaction, including the investors, owners, lenders and the operating business. We help you ensure tax efficient deal structuring and post-deal implementation, while considering potential consequences of exit strategies.
