The Mergers and Acquisitions - Asian Taxation Guide (now renamed as ‘Understanding Mergers and Acquisitions Tax in Asia’) was first released in 2002, providing our clients with some basic tools for understanding typical tax implications in M&A deals in the region. In this 2012 edition, our network of M&A tax professionals across the Asia Pacific region continues offering you valuable insights throughout the entire life cycle of the M&A process, from pre-deal negotiation, due diligence and tax structuring to post-deal integration.
We have prepared a summary of 15 jurisdictions across the Asia Pacific region, highlighting key tax issues relevant to both purchasers and sellers in an M&A deal. This guide has been written using the extensive technical knowledge and practical deal experience gathered by PwC’s M&A Tax Services practice in Asia. We hope you find this publication an essential read when contemplating M&A transactions in the region. PDF extracts of this guide:
