Programme Synopsis

A takeover to unlock value, a move to streamline to tap into economies of scale, an efficient way to expand into new markets and opportunities and the emergence of capital-rich investors seeking out deals amidst a growing region with robust market conditions, these are just some of the reasons mergers and acquisition (M&A) deals continue to see a positive outlook.  

A key component of M&As is due diligence, specifically, that of tax due diligence.  Where does one even begin to tunnel through the plethora of tax issues? How do tax professionals go about discovering underlying tax issues, especially in a cross-border context where cultural and language differences layer on a whole new dimension of challenges?  

Join in this upcoming webinar where Accredited Tax Advisor (Income Tax) Ms Sandie Wun, International Tax and Transaction Services Partner at Ernst & Young Solutions LLP, shares her personal experiences and expertise in managing tax risks in M&As. Journey with her through a M&A tax due diligence process and understand the possible tax issues lurking at each stage of the M&A cycle and what it takes to manage these. Come buckle up and be part of this upcoming session that promises to flash out the blind spots and offer a light-bulb moment or two!
