Mergers and Acquisitions: The New Environment

Published on 01 Dec 2006 | Took place at City West Function Centre, West Perth, WA

The level of M&A activity currently taking place across all industries and business scales (SME as well as the ‘big end of town’) requires tax advisors to not only understand the issues, risks and opportunities involved but to be able to add value and manage tax risk.

These seminar materials address various current tax issues in the M&A sphere, from the perspective of both the vendor and purchaser. They discuss issues applying to a broad range of taxpayers, including privately held groups, listed entities and individuals.
