Corporate Transactions


Whether buying or selling, we support you all the way

Buying or selling a company raises a host of legal, business and tax issues.

  • Should the transaction be a share deal or asset deal?
  • What are the tax implications of selling the company?
  • What is the best tax treatment of the purchase price?
  • Are there any risks associated with the company being acquired?
  • How should tax risks be dealt with in the purchase agreement?
  • How will the new firm be integrated into the existing company structure?
  • How will the deal be financed?
  • How can financing costs be utilised for tax purposes?

Corporate transactions are our business

Many years of experience in the field means the specialists at CMS GmbH Steuerberatungsgesellschaft are well-equipped to carry out thorough due diligence.
