Mergers & Acquisitions
KPMG's Mergers & Acquisitions Tax practice (M&A Tax) advises clients on Kazakhstan tax consequences of disposals, acquisitions or mergers of businesses, and market entry both within and outside Kazakhstan and the CIS.
We support our clients through the entire deal process - from initial structuring to closing the deal - as well as through post deal implementation of the strategic plan. We use our knowledge and experience to select transaction structures that, so far as possible, are not subject to the tax legislation changes and can stand up to the tax authorities’ scrutiny in the future.
KPMG’s M&A Tax can help investors properly prepare for and execute transactions to reduce or avoid financial pitfalls and unwelcome post-transaction surprises. Working in conjunction with KPMG's Transaction Services Group, we offer a range of pre- and post-deal M&A tax services - whether the transaction is local or cross-border - which include:
- Tax Due Diligence;
- Structuring an Acquisition or Disposition;
- Tax Modeling;
- Assistance with Sales-Purchase Agreement;
- Vendor Assistance;
- Post-Deal Integration.
Why choose KPMG
- M&A transactions are very time consuming: KPMG consultants can invest the needed time for deal support, allowing an investor's management to focus on the core business.
- Global mindset, which KPMG specialists bring, is increasingly in demand, including competitive auctions and vendor due diligence.
- Transparent structures - which KPMG consultants can implement - are increasingly required by banks and shareholders.
- Transactions are constantly increasing in complexity requiring new technical specialist knowledge.
- Cross-border transactions require project management and multi-jurisdictional teams due to differences in law, regulations, business cultures, time zones and languages.
