Mergers, acquisitions and disposals have enormous potential for value creation for your investors. To realise this potential, it is vital to understand and take tax implications into account at the outset.

This is even more important if you are entering into a cross-border transaction. The confluence of differences in laws, regulations, business cultures, time zones and language can multiply the risk of fiscal miscalculations, misunderstandings and misconceptions.
