Tax & transactions

Tax is a key consideration for all transactions, whether at the start of the business life or the end. We can assist in all matters arising from transactions.

Acquisition & mergers

  • Tax due diligence “ identify whether your target business has any hidden tax obligations.
  • Pre-acquisition tax optimisation; including debt/equity mix, repatriation, and optimising tax carrying values.
  • Assistance with system integration for high quality tax reporting.

Exit strategy

  • Preparing your business for succession or sale.
  • Purpose built ownership structures to protect capital and income flowing from business sales.
  • Assistance with sale documentation and the settlement process.

Land transactions

  • The taxation of land transactions is a minefield and can involve significant sums, whether it is a suburban subdivision or major redevelopment.
  • We have expertise in analysing transactions, recommending changes to initial plans to provide the best results, and working with clients to ensure correct implementation.
  • We can assist with obtaining Binding Rulings on land transactions if appropriate or, if you find yourself being asked questions by Inland Revenue, can assist with obtaining the best possible outcome.
