Proactive Tax Strategies to Assist Before, During, and After the Deal
Whether acquiring, optimizing, or exiting, Crowe Horwath LLP helps private equity firms maximize return-on-investments with a complete suite of tax services. Half of our top 50 clients are private equity groups and our PEG client base has a combined total fund size of nearly $200 billion. Crowe has a 20-year history of assisting our clients with strategies to improve tax efficiency and reduce the risk of noncompliance.
Our federal tax, international tax, and tax accounting services focus on proactive approaches to increase cash flow and reduce state and local tax liability to maximize portfolio value.
State and local taxes can represent a substantial cost for portfolio companies. Crowe tax specialists help private equity firms and their portfolio companies identify above-the-line tax strategies in the areas of credits and incentives, unclaimed property, sales and use tax, and property tax.
Getting the deal done often requires M&A tax planning and tax due diligence to recognize opportunities and risks for buy side or sell side transactions. We can also assist with tax structuring and advisory services before and during an acquisition, including tax consideration for Initial Public Offering or looking to realize value through a divestiture.
Crowe is an industry leader in fund-level tax structuring and compliance and is highly proficient with the tax law relevant to fund formation, maintenance, and reporting.
