M&A Transactions

Mergers and acquisitions, jointventures and other corporate transactions almost always raise tax issues of varying complexity.Accordingly, our Corporate/M&A Department works closely with our Tax Department to guide our national and international clients through such transactions.

Our fields of expertise

Our Tax Department handles all kinds of tax-related transaction work and provides advice on all tax aspects with respect to:

  • Corporate restructuring, such as mergers, demergers, partial demergers and contributions of a branch of activities;

  • Acquisitions (via a share or asset deal);

  • Joint ventures;

  • Private equity or venture capital investments, whether on the side of the private equity investor or of the management during an MBO or LBO;

  • Real estate;

  • Holding structures;

  • Tax-efficient financing structures;

  • Issuing requests for tax rulings.

Alongside the direct tax implications, most M&A transactions also include challenging indirect tax aspects, such as VAT, registration duties and other duties, all of which are handled by our Tax Department.
