There are a couple of different ways that a business acquisition can be structured, and the tax implications will vary for each.

The webinar will walk the participants through the key steps of either a share or asset purchase process and will highlight the specific tax and other practical considerations associated with each. Considering her expertise, the participants will benefit from Ms. Landry’s wealth of anecdotal experience and editorial comments.

This webinar will be of most interest to accountants, tax practitioners, and other practitioners involved in business transfers.
