• Tax Due Diligence

    Specialist tax expertise and due diligence to give you confidence that you are making the right transaction.

Tax Due Diligence

We understand ambitious and entrepreneurial management teams as well as the needs of the large corporates, city institutions, private equity and other investors. This makes us the ideal choice to bridge those different worlds and manage the differences in culture and business practice that inevitably arise on transactions.

Whether you are engaged in a private equity and a capital market transaction, you will work with a specialist team that understands your commercial needs. The reports you receive will be issues-led and include the expert opinion and analysis of the leading partner on your engagement. We go beyond one-size fits to bring you a flexible report designed to meet your specific requirements.

While we are a standalone team providing focused on tax due diligence, we work very closely with our colleagues in the Transactions Services and Capital Markets teams. We also provide bid-support work and advise on the tax aspects of reporting accountant work. 

Our approach is flexible and will be tailored to your needs.  You can commission high level diligence and red-flag reporting or a comprehensive exercise or anything in between. We will also tailor our approach to take account of less material jurisdictions or discrete areas such as those relevant to a specific sector or private equity backing.
