Tax will often be a crucial aspect in a plan to restructure or rescue a distressed business. The tax issues arising in these situations can be complex and varied.

Tax risks need to be considered early in the restructuring or insolvency process, so they can be identified and mitigated wherever possible. Unexpected tax liabilities can add significant costs to a transaction, and the potentially conflicting interests of stakeholders also need to be taken into account.

We can help you identify tax issues from the start, so they don’t impact your business's ability to regain a stable financial footing.
