A company undergoing a strategic transition (e.g., merger, acquisition, reorganization, divestiture) risks losing value and control. The complexity surrounding the transition can impede a company’s ability to simultaneously focus on maintaining current operations, realizing valuable deal synergies, and achieving timely integration. Companies must focus on cross-border tax planning strategies to help efficiently align their commercial and tax objectives.
