Your tax advisers throughout every phase of your company’s lifecycle

Mergers & Acquisitions Tax

Manage transactions through a complex tax landscape.

Ever-changing global tax laws and regulations pose challenges for even the most prepared organizations navigating an acquisition, merger, disposition, or restructuring. Overlapping tax implications and the commercial realities of the transaction can create risk and prevent a strategic opportunity from reaching its expected value. With KPMG LLP as your adviser, you will effectively integrate tax planning into the early phases of the deal process. And, as your transaction unfolds, we can help you achieve better tax efficiency—whether it’s small-scale or massive, domestic, or oceans apart.

We understand the practical impact of tax developments from one country to the next, how those local country tax laws and regulations integrate into your cross-border business footprint, and where opportunities are that can add shareholder or investor value. Our tax professionals have extensive experience working with companies across a broad spectrum of industries and investment categories. Our diverse team of M&A Tax professionals come from a variety of backgrounds and have broad technical depth to provide actionable insights. Working with our industry-leading quantitative technology tools, our M&A Tax transaction teams deliver actionable feedback on risks and opportunities, and provide modeling to illustrate the impact of business decisions and regulatory changes.
