Expanding into the United States, structuring US operations or being engaged in M&A activity requires a lot of work, including advice on tax-efficient structuring and how to effectively manage US tax exposure. There are a lot of non-tax considerations as well. In some cases, knowing whether an asset acquisition or a purchase of shares provides a better tax result may make a big difference between realizing a higher return on investment and paying higher taxes.
