Mergers & Acquisitions
Whether you are buying a business, selling a business, or combining assets and resources with another company, the tax implications of the transaction need to be fully considered and understood up front. In many cases, the structure of an M&A transaction will not be tax equal to both parties. Dennis, Gartland & Niergarth can work with you to quantify the tax effect of the transaction, so that this information can be considered as a part of the negotiation process.
There are many factors to consider when working through a merger or acquisition, and the tax implications often fall by the wayside. However, the organization and structure of the company you are acquiring or merging with may have long-term implications for your business—not just in terms of taxes, but also for liability and day-to-day operations. If you are considering an M&A transaction, an early meeting with DGN will help you identify and weigh the many pros and cons of such a major business transaction.
