Assistant Manager (M&A)
Deloitte Taxation Services - South Africa
I am currently working in the Mergers & Acquisitions team of the Business Tax division. I assist clients in corporate restructures in order to structure such a transaction as tax-neutral as possible. I also advise clients on potential M&A activity (both buy- and sell-side) in order to structure any disposal or acquisition as tax-efficiently as possible.
My work includes creating detailed tax disposal models allowing clients to visualise the potential effects of their proposed transaction. I also assist in providing alternative structures which may prove more efficient. I also liaise with our colleagues in other jurisdictions in order to identify any tax risks when dealing with multi-jurisdictional transactions.
I also review sale agreements from a tax perspective to ensure that the objectives of any structuring arrangement are met when executing these agreements.
In addition to structuring I also perform tax due diligence reviews for clients (both buy- and sell-side) on potential targets and/or disposal businesses in order to identify any tax risks and that sales agreements provide sufficient protection to such risks.
