International Tax & Transactions Services

Optimising our clients' global tax profile - and the benefits of the deal

PwC's International Tax and Transactions Services group provides Australian and international tax advice in three key areas:
  • International Taxation
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Capital Markets

International Taxation

To compete and survive in globalised markets, businesses must keep up with the accelerating pace of tax, legislative and regulatory developments throughout the world. We are experienced in addressing these developments as well as all aspects of international taxation. We help multinational businesses achieve their business goals in a tax efficient manner, both locally and globally.

We assist companies investing into Australia (inbound) and Australian companies investing overseas (outbound) with:
  • Formulating and implementing effective and tax efficient cross-border strategies for investments
  • Keeping up-to-date with new developments affecting their business locally and globally
  • Managing the global structural tax rate.

Mergers & Acquisitions

When making an acquisition, disposing of a non-core business or going through a merger, companies need to manage tax risk and ensure future net cash flows are optimised. Tax planning at an early stage can add significant value to every transaction. Such planning is essential to reduce both the actual transaction tax costs and the long term sustainable tax rate following the transaction. We deliver thorough, quantitative analysis, rigorous implementation and leading-edge structuring techniques.

We can help you:
  • Assess and manage acquisition/merger risk
  • Structure acquisitions to optimise net cash flows
  • Carry out pre-acquisition due diligence
  • Ensure tax efficient deal structuring
  • Ensure post-deal integration.

Capital Markets

The increasing mobility of global capital is leading to even greater competition. We can assist investment banks, listed funds and corporations in a variety of areas, including:
  • Tax efficient structuring of products
  • Capital management
  • PDS disclosures.
We are also Australia’s largest multi-disciplinary partnership, which means we have the experience and expertise to seamlessly offer both legal and non-legal services to our clients across a broad range of international taxation matters.
