BackgrounD information

Corporate re-organisations pose challenges from a tax perspective as they could result in an incidence of taxation where latent value has not been effectively realized within a single economic unit. The Income Tax Act and Duty on Documents and Transfers Act establish a number of relief mechanisms that acknowledge the sensibility of tax neutral treatment of certain re-org transactions. To manage risk, stakeholders should be fully aware of the potential tax implications at entity and investor levels. Adding a cross-border dimension to a re-org transaction may further complicate matters. This session intends to explore these nuances in detail, with a view to providing participants with a model to assess the tax risks associated with a variety of re-org transaction alternatives.

Topics on the agenda

  • Corporate tax matters
  • Assessing trigger points for the incidence of taxation on re-org transactions at entity and shareholder levels
  • Roll-over relief mechanisms
  • Rulings
  • Stamp Duty
  • Real estate transactions
  • The Merger Directive
  • Cross-border considerations

Why is this session of relevance to our members?

Corporate re-org transactions are a frequent occurrence, and given the potential obligation of taxpayers to file tax documentation on a transactional level, practitioners ought to have a strong grasp of the key technical provisions.

Target Audience

Accountants, financial controllers, tax advisors
