Australian M&A tax cheatbook

Surgery with Anaesthetics: M&A Taxation, written by Ken Spence and Edward Consett of Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills, is a one-stop guide to tax problems and abnormalities that arise when companies:

  • seek scrip-for-scrip relief;
  • make transaction-related distributions;
  • are acquired and join a tax consolidated group; and
  • demerge one business from another.

The article, first published in The Tax Specialist in July and updated for a number of subsequent developments, provides a broad summary of the applicable tax rules and adopts an easy-to-use table format to address specific issues. An invaluable resource for tax, legal and corporate advisory professionals working on M&A transactions.
