The focus in Tax Consolidations to date has been on the pros and cons of entering the
Consolidations regime and the impact on asset cost bases and losses. As a result of the loss of the grouping rules, many corporate groups will have elected to enter the Tax Consolidation regime. Having elected to Consolidate, these corporate groups are now operating within the consolidated environment.
Designed specifically for corporate and middle market tax advisers, this seminar examined the tax issues and challenges facing companies that are operating in the Tax Consolidations regime, particularly when the time comes to buy or sell a business.
