In addition to commercial and financial due diligence and the calculation of the purchase price, tax aspects also play an important role in mergers and acquisitions, especially in international transactions. Our deals tax team can provide you with support even before you decide to make an acquisition by identifying tax risks in the existing structure and pointing out opportunities for improvement.
This is how we work together to lay a solid foundation for successful negotiations. We also provide tailored advice on all legal and tax issues relating to SPAs, taking into account all relevant factors.
After closing a transaction, consistent implementation of the transaction structure and sustainable tax planning are crucial for long-term success. Many questions need to be taken into account. How can fiscal units between buyers and target companies be implemented? How do companies and private equity investors deal with transaction costs? How can new tax structures be integrated into the existing group or existing tax structures be carved out of organisations? How can tax compliance be improved for companies operating across borders? What is the correct way to register new companies from a fiscal point of view? There are also sector-specific questions such as: Which property transfer tax applies in an M&A transaction, especially where real estate companies are involved? Or what taxes are applicable to financial products? We can assist you in answering all these questions. You benefit from our extensive tax know-how and many years of experience with mergers & acquisitions, covering national and international transactions, tax structuring, tax modelling and general tax advice. We work with you to implement new legal and tax structures after transactions and we also handle optimising existing structures.

Sooner or later, tax issues become important in every transaction. Tax structuring tailored to your needs is indispensable, especially for cross-border transactions. Tax advice has an impact on the transaction structure and financing because of country-specific tax legislation. This raises a number of questions. How can companies and private equity investors best position themselves in tax matters? And how can tax risks be reduced when buying and selling companies or divisions of companies? How do you involve management in your company in terms of taxation? And how can you retain tax loss carryforwards and use them in the future? How do you obtain tax attributes? And can you ensure that funds circulate freely – both nationally and internationally?
PwC’s tax experts know how to make your deals tax-efficient and create optimal transaction structures. What is important here is that every company acquisition or sale disposal requires tax structuring individually tailored to your requirements – especially if private equity investors are involved in the deal. We think sustainably in our consulting, and there are a few questions we always ask. Does your tax structure fit your business model? And how can your corporate structure be simplified from a tax standpoint? Working closely with you is important to us. We listen to you, provide comprehensive advice and use our experience from tax due diligence and contract negotiations in the structuring process to get the best results for you. As a PwC client, you can also draw on our global network of deals tax specialists. If required, we can quickly put together an international team of tax and other transaction experts for you.
Financial models capture many aspects of transactions, but taxes are often only presented in a simplified form. This leaves many questions unanswered in tax modelling. Exactly which direct and indirect taxes are applicable? How will the tax burden of the target company evolve in future? How can the effective tax rate be optimised? How can deferred taxes and other tax assets be used efficiently? Do tax aspects affect the cash flow and strategy of the target company? And what does that mean for determining the purchase price?

Professional purchase agreements are a basic prerequisite for successful corporate transactions. This includes a professionally negotiated tax clause between the buyer and the seller. But how do companies and other organisations map tax risks that have come to light during tax due diligence? And does the purchase agreement fit the planned transaction structure? Or does the purchase contract itself perhaps harbour risks – also with regard to guarantees, warranties and indemnities? And how are taxes on closing accounts and locked box accounts to be handled?
