When conducting an M&A transaction, organizations will undoubtedly face state and local tax issues during all phases of the transaction life cycle. On this TaxWatch webcast, professionals from the KPMG State and Local Tax (SALT) and M&A Tax practices discuss state and local tax matters experienced through the eyes of a seller and a buyer throughout the three distinct phases of a transaction, including:
- Pre-transaction: SALT leading practices from a seller’s perspective prior to divesting itself of an investment (e.g., private equity seller) and/or subsidiary (corporate seller) entity, and buyer’s perspective prior to acquiring a stand-alone business and/or subsidiary entity of a seller
- Transaction: Important SALT issues arising for the seller and/or buyer during the transaction steps to effectuate a transaction
- Post-transaction: Important SALT issue to be addressed by the seller and buyer following a transaction that involves legal entities and/or assets.
