Acquisitions

Specialist tax services

Whether a first time purchaser, a serial acquirer or an MBO/MBI team, we have the knowledge and experience to assist with tax planning opportunities in all aspects of the acquisition process.

How we can help:

  • Due diligence to identify any tax risks in respect of the target business.
  • Advise on acquisition structure to consider whether purchasing entity should be group, joint venture or standalone.
  • Review availability of trading and capital tax losses.
  • Review capital allowances and advise on necessary elections.
  • Consider shareholder tax reliefs – including inheritance tax and entrepreneurs' relief.
  • Review transaction for employment related securities exposure and reporting.
  • Consider stamp duty and stamp duty land tax exposure.
  • Identify any opportunities to access equity based tax reliefs such as EIS and SEIS.
  • If relevant, consider any non-residence tax opportunities and risks.
