M&A is key to corporate recovery strategy Across industries, we anticipate large-scale divestiture of non-core activities and transformations of existing business models. This carve out type of M&A transactions imply overhaul of a group's operating model and consequently a whole raft of intertwined tax implications and opportunities. Through a case study we will guide you through these tax aspects and how tax interacts with other functional areas such as for instance business, finance, HR and IT. This to create a streamlined and robust operating and business model that increases value, and a legal framework that ensures compliance with domestic and international tax requirements.


Modern tax control - monitoring and testing (In Dutch)

We will discuss with you maintaining your tax control framework through monitoring and testing. Thereby we cover drafting a monitoring calendar, data analysis, testing key controls, and statistical sampling. We give some practical tips on how this can be secured within your organization. For this, digital solutions are a key success factor.

How best to lock in tax value in a deal Competition for investments is fierce and intensifying. In this competitive M&A market it is critical, or an opportunity, that businesses not only clearly articulate their equity story but also emphasize their value drivers, including tax. Not only will this impact how you best diligence a company but also how the value of tax is preserved and created when negotiating the SPA or seeking W&I insurance coverage. Our deals and legal teams will present the changing landscape and leading practices - from both a sell and buy side perspective - on the interaction between diligence and contractual protection to secure the (tax) value and profile of an asset.
Post Covid (tax) value drivers of M&A Non-financial considerations, such as ESG, wellbeing and inclusion strategies, are increasingly impacting value. With the global COVID-19 crisis, there is momentum for further commitments. Smart deal structuring is key to enabling strategic acquisitions to move forward in this challenging environment. For instance stock-based transactions, joint-ventures and earn outs are more likely to be used as a means to address relative valuation uncertainties. Our structuring, legal and people specialists will discuss the relevant (regulatory) developments impacting these post COVID (tax) drivers and how you best benefit when structuring and negotiating your next deal.
