In case of an acquisition, the main focus is on products, people, market conditions and the financial parameters of the target. Nowadays, monitoring and analysing of the tax position of the company or activities that are to be acquired is being included more often to prevent potential pitfalls while at the same time it provides opportunities for fiscal optimization.
Simultaneously, we see an increasing demand in (vendor) due diligence reviews being performed in case of potential disposal of companies, divisions or activities. It provides the opportunity to optimize both from a seller’s as well as a buyer’s perspective.
In the ideal world, a tax due diligence would be combined with a legal due diligence. We can offer both services under the Taxture umbrella.
