Powering deals through the game-changing Global M&A Tax Virtual Hub

Igniting opportunities for private equity


Whether you're regularly conducting cross-border transactions or just considering one, you can turn to the experienced global mergers and acquisitions tax team at RSM for guidance. Jerry Martin, Eric Chen, Rob Mander and Vikas Sekhri discuss new enhancements to the collaborative team that is at your side to provide local and global insight every step of the way.

The Global M&A Tax Virtual Hub creates a new experience for middle market businesses by delivering real-time market insights and innovative ideas directly from M&A tax professionals in Hong Kong, Mexico, Netherlands and the United Kingdom, who are now dedicating their time to multinational clients.

Private equity dealmakers looking to expand globally can rely on this ideally positioned team to facilitate conversations and keep transactions moving despite COVID-19 travel restrictions, offering full visibility into current and future tax considerations at a local, regional and global level.

RSM’s M&A tax specialists are continually reimagining how to help clients navigate dynamic and complex tax landscapes.

“The Global M&A Tax Virtual Hub enhances our service delivery model for M&A tax,” says Vikas Sekhri, national leader for RSM US M&A tax services and the leader of the program. “It complements existing U.S. and global M&A tax team members as part of a single, virtually connected team, dedicated exclusively to serving our U.S. and global clients on cross-border transactions. We believe this initiative further demonstrates our commitment to being the first-choice advisor to middle market leaders globally.”

The hub takes shape

The hub deepens our involvement in tax issues across the geographic spectrum. Focusing our talents and efforts around critical needs of the market is at the core of the program, which Jerry Martin, chair of the RSM US LLP Board of Directors, has supported since development.

"I am excited for our clients and our team members. Now, together with our clients and our virtual team, we can accelerate what we’ve been doing with fewer barriers" says Martin, who also serves as international tax leader for RSM US. "When our clients are successful, our people are successful, and we do our part to provide for the economy."

Success, in this case, is synonymous with responsiveness, explains Rob Mander, international tax services leader for RSM International. 

"The virtual hub is innovative because we start from the perspective of our clients and the business opportunities they’re looking for,” Mander says, “and it’s designed with a dedicated team that can proactively collaborate with clients to solve the most complex of issues.”  

What does it mean to be a virtual hub?

The RSM network already has a process for communicating between offices that has created blended, trusted teams, says Eric Chen, head of tax services in Hong Kong, but the hub takes that to the next level for our multinational clients, who now have even easier access to these resources.

“Being deeply involved in the project with direct communication will allow us to respond quickly to the most crucial issues from a local and global perspective,” Chen says. “Our clients have access to direct information about M&A opportunities and transactions, as well as cultural practices, in any particular local country. They will also get technical updates on tax and business issues and other market insights.”
