A solid understanding of the tax environment is critical when planning a merger or acquisition.
In our annual survey in association with the Institute of Directors, we surveyed the views and opinion of IoD members and users of IoD.com. The results, on the one hand, highlight the difficulties facing CEOs and owners at a low- and emerging mid-market level. However – amid emerging threats and challenges – we are also seeing resilience and a determination to carve out new paths to growth.
M&A activity, whether buying, selling or merging has always been a strong complement to business success and in today’s slow-growth economy, it moves centre stage.
Buying or acquiring a business is a major milestone in any entrepreneur or business owner’s career. And it’s the one that invariably throws up the most challenges and concerns. With so many potential complexities to navigate, even ‘serial’ entrepreneurs and seasoned M&A veterans struggle to make the process of buying or selling work for them.
