M&A is an aspect of corporate strategy focusing on development and grow with specific targets (e.g. market shares, effectiveness, efficiency, knowhow, other aspects) using external ways instead of building them inside the company.
In M&A projects it is crucial to evaluate potential targets, conduct an effective due diligence process, evaluate the tax implications of different mergers, acquisitions and takeovers strategies. Tax involved in a M&A transaction is also a key factor to design the best investment strategy.
