Mergers and acquisitions transactions are often driven by tax considerations that affect the negotiation, structure, and documentation of deals. Legal and tax advisors must understand the ramifications of a planned transaction at the outset to negotiate and structure the deal in the most tax-efficient manner possible.
In this practical webinar, you will review the taxation of mergers and acquisitions at a high level, with an emphasis on the impact of recent tax law changes have made on deals structure. You will learn about the benefits and risks of a stock sale versus asset sale, including how to determine whether to structure the deal as a taxable or tax-free transaction or reorganization.
Upon course completion, you will be able to:
- Identify and describe tax implications involved in structuring earnouts and other deferred payments and compensatory payments
- Determine how to handle troubled companies and international acquisitions
- Describe the use of passthrough entities
