  • Tax modelling – assistance in forecasting post-deal tax liabilities in business models.
  • Vendor assistance – preparation of vendor side documentation and tax advice on the tax implications of the sale of a business, including pre-deal reorganisation measures and settlement of historic tax risks.
  • Post-deal integration – helping member firms' clients reconcile their own tax positions and those of the acquired business.
