M&A is one of the important means for an enterprise to expand its business. The investors, on one hand, need to conduct full due diligence (including legal and tax due diligence) to the target company, and on the other hand, need to analyze and select reasonable M&A approaches to reduce the tax cost of the transaction. These works can only be completed with the assistance of the tax professionals. In addition, the target company and its shareholders may also need to self-assess and verify the target company’s financial and tax situation prior to the transaction negotiation, with the assistance of the external legal and tax professionals, so that they can “know themselves and the other side” and to seize the initiative in the negotiations.
