Business today is under more pressure than ever to deliver better, lasting results for stakeholders. At KPMG, we think like an investor, looking at how opportunities to buy, sell, partner, fund or fix a company can add and preserve value. We can help companies understand processes, avoid pitfalls and seize opportunities of deals. We understand the practical impact of tax developments and when we spot opportunities, we know how to act on them to benefit stakeholders.

Our Tax professionals are commercially minded and deal-hardened and understand the mechanics of acquisition and disposals in a competitive environment – they know how to identify and advise on the material tax exposures in a transaction and to develop deal structures that appropriately address the tax implications.

KPMG's Deal Advisory, Tax group offers a range of tax services to corporate and private equity investors to help with local and cross-border transactions. Our services include:

  • Tax due diligence – identifying the tax exposure of a deal and how it may be mitigated, with clear focus on risk assessment.
  • Structuring an acquisition or disposition – advice on the tax consequences of individual acquisitions, joint ventures and divestments in order to help design tax-efficient deal structures.
  • 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.

Our services are tailored to the needs of our clients and are scaled to suit – from “red flags” reports to detailed formal opinions and binding rulings. We integrate well as part of our clients’ deal teams who appreciate our experience, insight and ability to “think on our feet” - making a positive contribution to live commercial negotiations.
