M&A tax due diligence in the aftermath of tax reform


Ineffective tax planning can have a huge impact on the economics of a transaction and could make or break the deal. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) made significant changes to the U.S. Tax Code. Many of these changes also affect aspects of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) transactions, including business entity selection, financing considerations and purchase price allocation considerations. Join us as our tax professionals share what we’ve learned since passage of TCJA last year.


In addition, we’ll be sharing important areas to consider when performing tax due diligence. You’ll want to consider often overlooked tax areas whether you are sitting on the buy or sell side of the deal. It’s never pleasant to receive unexpected, last-minute information before committing to a major purchase decision. Reductions in purchase price, indemnification escrows or deal failures are common if any irregularities are discovered or issues inadequately addressed.

This RSM event will take place immediately before the start of the Faegre Baker Daniels LLPs 2018 M&A Conference. (For more information about the Faegre event, please visit their event website.
