Global tax practice — inbound acquisitions at a glance
Following the first edition of our Inbound acquisitions at a glance brochure, we received a lot of feedback not only regarding the information provided, but also questions arising from current transactions on corporate level.
We decided to compile an annual update on the latest tax developments related to inbound acquisitions and are therefore proud to provide you with our second edition. In today’s globalised and complex business world, it is increasingly important for companies operating internationally to be aware of the tax environment in relevant jurisdictions, especially when it comes to acquisitions of foreign companies. Local tax requirements such as the preservation of tax losses, the deductibility of acquisition costs and the taxation of dividends and capital gains are usually decisive factors for the successful structuring of such transactions.
Members of our Global Tax practice have prepared an overview of the most relevant tax considerations for inbound acquisitions in jurisdictions such as Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, the US, Benelux and important Eastern European countries. For each jurisdiction, our local tax experts outline not only the respective transaction taxes (stamp and capital duties, if any, real estate transfer taxes, capital gains tax and so on) but also provide you with opportunities to structure inbound acquisitions in the most tax-efficient way.
