Transaction Tax Services

No matter what the transaction is – merger, acquisition, disposal, restructuring, initial public offering etc. – tax implications can have a major impact and must be taken into consideration to determine the transaction value and potential exposures.

Our transaction tax professionals can not only help you unlock the full value from your transaction, but can also identify tax related drivers for initiating a transaction. We will work with you throughout the transaction process, from due diligence to transaction structuring to post-deal implementation, ensuring that the value of the transaction is retained.

Overcoming these challenges is a very complex process and having the right advisors can make the difference between success and failure. At HSS, we can successfully help you identify and evaluate the tax related opportunities and risks associated with a transaction.
