Session 10.2: M&A and capital management

With Simon Jenner, CTA, EY; Andrew Sharp, EY

Mergers and Acquisitions always generate interesting tax issues. 

This session will provide an overview of some key tax issues observed on recent deals and capital management transactions, with a particular emphasis on:

  •  Demergers – the current state of play, and what does the “and nothing else” requirement mean for          other areas of the tax law?
  •  The ongoing interplay between tax consolidation and M&A;
  •  Approaching the ATO for guidance in the cut and thrust of a deal;
  •  Scrip-for-scrip emerging issues; and
  •  Can that dividend be franked?
