This course deals with the aspects that should be considered when advising clients on buying and selling a company or business.

    • Protecting trading losses
    • Tax relief for goodwill and intangibles in the light of the F(No2)A 2015 and FRS 102
  • Advising vendors
    • Share sale v trade and assets
    • Planning to avoid the “double charge” on getting their money out of the business
    • Tax treatment of different forms of consideration including the treatment of things like earn outs
    • Entrepreneurs’ relief including property owned outside the company
  • Pre-sale planning where appropriate including reconstructions and demergers
  • Practical points, planning matters and pitfalls
