Restructuring is often thought of as synonymous with formal insolvency work such as Administrations, Liquidations and Company Voluntary Arrangements (CVAs).

However, KPMG Tax Restructuring Services can be non-insolvency related and stretch right across the business cycle.

We’ve been able to take many of our core skills and attributes gained from our crisis response work and apply them to a range of alternative scenarios - from retailers re-imagining their estate footprint to corporates seeking to improve their working capital performance in order to accelerate growth.

The tax landscape has seen significant changes over recent years as a number of countries respond to the OECD’s base erosion and profit shifting (“BEPS”) initiatives. Tax deductibility of interest, use of losses, substance requirements and acceptable transfer pricing models can make significant impacts to cash flows and result in valuation adjustments if not managed carefully.

The KPMG Tax Restructuring Team works closely with its global tax network and has experience of dealing with many businesses of different sizes.

Our services encompass all areas of HMRC stakeholder management, assisting clients to navigate a wide range of direct and indirect tax issues.
