Below are examples of services we can provide to assist with selling a business, which will help to maximize the after tax proceeds and create greater shareholder value.


Prepare the company for the bidders’ tax due diligence review. Our assistance generally includes the following:

Tax Due Diligence
Planning and Implementation


Evaluate the options to develop a tax-efficient strategy to sell the business, which may involve the use of “capital gains exemption” or “safe income strips”. We can also work with business valuators where required and assist in negotiating the sale terms which may include arrangements such as earnouts, sale and leaseback, management buyouts, and share-for-share exchanges.

Throughout the process, we work closely with legal counsel to implement the tax planning with the required legal documentation. We can also prepare all the required tax filings and tax elections.
