M&A tax structuring

PwC Global Structuring and International Tax Service team has gained rich experiences in both cross-border and domestic M&A deals. We leverage our in-depth industry expertise and PwC worldwide network to provide our clients with premium value-added tax services, especially relating to comprehensive and sophisticated global M&A deals.

Our tax planning services are aimed to assist the management in efficient and effective decision-making by advising on efficient deal structure, financing arrangement and optimized post-deal holding structure. In the meantime, we assist the companies in effective management of the potential tax risks and maximization of their outbound investment value.

Tax planning is relevant throughout the whole deal process. Considering the tax regimes of both China and the target jurisdictions, we will advice on feasible plans from perspectives of holding structure, dividend repatriation, future operational model and exit. We will analyse tax implications, address potential tax risks and propose available solutions associated with each alternative. We will also utilize PwC global network to assist in the efficient implementation of the chosen plan by our clients.

Potential one-stop tax solutions include:

  • Overseas investment and financing platform
  • Deal structure and financing arrangement
  • Post-deal investment and financing structure optimization
  • Operational model planning
  • Value chain transformation planning (not limited to intangible property planning)
  • Transfer pricing planning
  • Tax planning relating to future exit, reorganization and IPO
