Global Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and Acquisitions

KPMG in Canada’s Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Tax professionals can help businesses identify cross-border tax issues and opportunities.

KPMG’s Mergers and Acquisitions Tax practice can help businesses with cross-border M&A.

Where we add value

Global Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) services can help add value well beyond traditional tax compliance and due diligence by focusing on opportunities that arise within, and because of, an acquisition.

Companies involved in any of these complex transactions can benefit from tax advice that goes beyond traditional tax compliance and due diligence.

Your company may also need to focus on tax issues and opportunities that arise both during and after the transaction, such as:

  • Restructuring for a business disposal
  • Business refinancing for an acquisition
  • Preparing for a tax-efficient deal structure

In addition to working with private and public companies, our Global M&A professionals assist financial and institutional clients, including investment funds, pension funds, sovereign funds, and private equity funds, in structuring their inbound and outbound investments.

Move quickly, but carefully

To create real and long-lasting value, you should move quickly to take advantage of market opportunities

But you should also carefully consider all of the associated tax implications—from measuring tax liabilities in the initial due diligence phase through the structuring of the deal, to compliance in the post-merger period.

Throughout, you should look beyond compliance and due diligence and develop a tax-efficient plan that meets your broader strategic business goals.

How we work with you

Our Global M&A tax professionals can help you design a transaction in a way that efficiently manages your tax costs while remaining consistent with your business objectives.

We provide:

  • Tax due diligence (buy and sell)
  • Modeling
  • Structuring (pre- and post-deal)
  • Reorganization (pre-deal) services

We also help you prepare advance tax ruling requests and negotiate with the tax authorities regarding the structure and taxation of merger, acquisition, tax compliance and reorganization transactions.
