Ryan’s extensive knowledge and research of international cross-border transaction rules and regulations support the efficient management of the resulting complex compliance obligations. We ensure that our clients consider all of the variables associated with cross-border transactions, including supply chain management, tax jurisdiction requirements, registration, varying tax rates, administrative policies and procedures, bookkeeping and statistical information requirements, cash flow cost reduction, and deferment opportunities.
Ryan’s M&A professionals help clients properly structure M&A deals to avoid hidden tax consequences, and help determine whether the acquisition itself is subject to GST. When real estate is involved, we assist in identifying other potential GST issues that may arise, including examining the effects on other taxes such as property, conveyance, or transfer taxes which differ by jurisdiction.
Ryan provides customs and GST planning strategies that minimise tax exposure because certain customs facilities can be extended to include GST.
