Companies have a tremendous opportunity to create value through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), but the question is are they prepared from a tax perspective.
Evaluating the long-term tax implications of M&A deals has never been easy, but the 2017 U.S. tax reform—which fundamentally changed how buyers, sellers, lenders, and investors are taxed—has compounded the challenge.
KPMG LLP has prepared a report—Transactions in the age of tax reform—that draws on the experiences and insights of over 100 tax and finance leaders to uncover ways dealmakers can improve the odds of M&A success in the tax reform era. The report provides insights on the key tax issues facing dealmakers, how to incorporate new provisions into modeling and structuring, and what new skill sets are needed to add value at each stage of the transaction process.
