Economic pressures due to Brexit and COVID-19 have put a strain on government coffers. Robust tax compliance remains as important as it has ever been and during uncertain economic times tax risk can be even more prevalent. Market resurgence and a rising level of transactions means organisations are at a point where tax risks, as well as profitability, are under increased buyer scrutiny. How can tax controversy help with tax risk assessment? We’ll discuss:

  • The wider tax controversy landscape with HMRC.
  • How tax controversy can support M&A processes, e.g. through:
  • —Containing reputational and financial risk with informed diligence stage risk assessment and quantification.
  • —Handling buy-side post transaction voluntary disclosure to HMRC.

Delve into how tax controversy can support and enhance the transaction process.
