Mergers, Acquisitions and Restructuring

There are many reasons why corporate groups need to confront Kenya’s complex tax laws. Companies often pursue acquisitions, divestment, expansion, offshore trading or simply to rationalize an historically complex structure. Whatever the reason, proper attention to tax and commercial outcomes is critical to maximizing the benefits available through structuring and/or restructuring.
