IFS - Areas of Practice

Corporate Transactions

Companies of all sizes have exposure to cross-border transactions through ownership of overseas subsidiaries and assets or international trade. Whilst tax is a direct cost to any business, in the context of international transactions it can have a significant impact on the success of a deal. These factors, combined with increasingly complex tax laws and anti-avoidance legislation, require a detailed knowledge of both the tax systems relevant to a particular deal and an understanding of the commercial and business drivers. IFS has 44 years’ experience of advising companies in areas such as M&A, sale and lease-back, intellectual property structuring, asset purchase and transfer pricing.
