When contemplating a merger, acquisition, reorganization, or divestiture (“M&A”) transaction, a structured, cohesive plan can assist employers in achieving desired outcomes. Continuing from last month’s ETS Tax Intelligence, which emphasized the importance of proper Due Diligence, the second phase in preparing for a successful M&A transaction focuses on Planning/Design.
Planning/Design is the strategy development phase of the M&A process whereby the most “tax-efficient” structures are revealed and the risks, opportunities, and synergies identified during Due Diligence are quantified.
While unemployment taxes do not often drive decisions relating to the structure of an M&A transaction, pre-transaction management can help shape the timing and final organizational structure. Equifax assists employers in understanding unemployment tax strategies necessary to achieve meaningful tax cost-savings.
