Our approach

KPMG member firms listen and work closely with you, combining professional expertise with deal knowledge and experience. KPMG professionals use all the technology and other resources at their disposal to help ensure effective collaboration, while building face-toface relationships with clients.

Services include:

  • Tax due diligence: identifying the tax exposure of a deal and how it may be mitigated, with a clear focus on risk assessment
  • Structuring an acquisition or disposition: advice on the tax consequences of individual acquisitions, joint ventures and divestments to help design tax-efficient deal structures
  • Contract assistance: helping the legal advisors in reviewing agreements to reduce the risk of unexpected tax exposures and help determine if tax issues arising from the due diligence report are  accurately represented
  • Tax modeling: assistance in modeling the tax effects of transactions, including assisting  in tracking the cash and non-cash steps in fund flow
  • Vendor assistance: preparation of vendor side documentation and tax advice on the tax implications of the sale of a business, including pre-deal reorganization measures and settlement of historic tax risks
  • Acquisition cost recovery analysis: analyzing associated deals (deduction versus depreciation) to help mitigate the after-tax deal costs
  • Post-deal integration: helping tax leaders reconcile their own tax positions and those of the acquired businesses as well as capturing the synergies.
