Nexia TS Supporting You Through COVID-19 Series: Mergers & Acquisitions – Keep Tax in Mind

Date:    25 June 2020, Thursday
Time:    2:30pm - 3:30pm

COVID-19 has drastically affected the global economy. This has resulted in larger businesses including restructuring in their “to-do-lists”, and smaller businesses considering exiting their mature investments. At the same time, reduced costs of capital should give incentive for investors to seek out undervalued investments. These have combined to create M&A opportunities. Our session will highlight how tax continues to be an important but yet often neglected consideration in M&A opportunities, and how businesses can optimize their immediate and long-term tax consequences arising therefrom.
