Taxation Services


Tax issues can add substantial value to any corporate transaction and should be integral to the structure and timing. Entrepreneurs work hard to build their businesses and naturally want to maximise the sale price.

Yet failure to place tax at the centre of the transaction strategy can erode the benefits and create unwanted headaches further down the line.

  • Our specialist tax advisers ensure the business is structured correctly well ahead of the sale in order to minimise potential tax liabilities, and in particular to take advantage of favourable capital gains tax reliefs.
  • We understand that the nature of the consideration received, whether in cash or securities, earn outs or on deferred terms, will have varying tax effects and significantly influence the terms of the final deal.
  • The sale process generates comprehensive legal documentation associated with the disposal. We examine this is in detail to identify any hidden taxation implications that could produce an adverse effect.
  • Our role is to guide our clients through the tax complexities of a disposal, whether the proprietor is selling shares, assets, or an interest in an unincorporated business.
