Underestimate the Tax Impact of an Acquisition
your company wants to acquire another business, you'll need to
anticipate many challenges. To improve your odds of success,
it's important to devote resources to intensive tax planning
before - and after - your deal closes.
During deal negotiations, you
and the seller will likely discuss issues such as to what
extent each party can deduct their transaction costs and how
much in local, state and federal tax obligations the parties
will owe upon signing the deal. Often, deal structures (such
as asset sales) that typically benefit buyers have negative
tax consequences for sellers and vice versa.
Tax management during integration is
also important. It can help your company capture
synergies more quickly and efficiently. You may, for example,
have based your purchase price on the assumption that you'll
achieve a certain percentage of cost reductions via postmerger
synergies. But if your tax projections are flawed or you fail
to follow through on earlier tax assumptions, you may not
realize such synergies.
Negative tax consequences of an acquisition can haunt a
company for years. Let us help you avoid them and identify tax
benefits that can improve the acquisition as a whole. Please
