Every M&A deal has tax implications. Many create tax opportunities that organisations often overlook in the rush to get the deal done. Taxand’s global team of M&A tax specialists provide proactive advice throughout the lifecycle of your investments. Guidance for mergers and acquisitions is a core activity within our Amsterdam office.
We have the expertise and capacity to support you at every stage of the M&A process from a tax perspective: carrying out the necessary tax due diligence; conceptualising flexible, tax compliant structures that optimise your investment while ensuring smooth implementation and management; and completing the tax-related and post-deal activities. We have extensive experience in drafting the tax paragraphs of the SPA and monitoring (and if necessary litigating) the fulfilment of the tax paragraphs in the SPA.
Our tax due diligence reports are practical and not only address the risks relating to the past, but also consider potential opportunities and suggest improvements for the future. We can cover the entire spectrum of tax in our reports as we are a full service tax firm and have in-house specialists in, for example, VAT and wage tax.
Our independence advantage means we can act quickly to deliver the answers you need and avoid audit-based conflicts. Our global capability allows us to look outside the local context to achieve the results you need and our strong relations with Dutch financial and legal firms allows us to work smoothly together on a deal.
We also have a strong focus on the structuring of tax efficient management incentive programs. Because we are a global full service tax firm we can also assist with the (global) income tax, wage tax, social security aspects of these programs.
We are proud of the large (inter)national companies and private equity funds we have as clients, but also of the smaller companies that act from a specific growth strategy.
