Taxation of corporate restructurings

Back to Tax

In a changing environment, characterised by the globalisation of trade, the financialisation of the economy, the acceleration of technological change and an increase in competitiveness, a company’s success will depend upon its ability to adapt to shifting market conditions. In this context, corporate restructurings are increasingly commonplace. As diverse as they are complex, these operations can sometimes raise key tax-related questions (the taxation of unrealised gains, liquidation dividends, registration fees, the management of losses, fiscal integration, tax rulings, the management of cross-border aspects, transfer pricing and business valuations, intangible asset management, etc.). Vision and expert guidance is required to successfully navigate the range of tax issues arising from a restructuring, to select the tax options most appropriate to the aims that the merger, demerger or partial contribution of assets intends to achieve.
