Perhaps surprising to some is the increase in M&A transactions taking place within our current environment. Whatever the reason, companies continue to acquire other businesses at a tremendous pace. During this session we will focus on the seller within that transaction-we will explore the considerations sellers should be aware of and discuss some strategies to consider when looking to mitigate state tax risks associated with such discussions.
Objectives: After attending this session, attendees will be able to:
- Understand key state tax risks associated with selling a business;
- Develop an approach for mitigating tax risk associated with a sale; and
- Apply state tax concepts such as nexus, residency and apportionment when negotiating key terms and conditions within a purchase agreement.
We will be applying for CLE and CPE credit for this presentation.
