Every legal transaction gives rise to taxation issues. Identifying, understanding, evaluating and dealing with tax risk is critical, whether undertaking a significant transaction or day-to-day business matters.

Our tax team operates nationally, with a dedicated team of specialist tax lawyers possessing a depth of experience in all direct and indirect taxes.

We have a strong focus on transactional work, including mergers and acquisitions (M&A), tax due diligence, cross-border investment (inbound and outbound), private equity investment, funds establishment and management, major projects and infrastructure, capital markets and finance, property development and real estate, and corporate restructures. We work closely with our corporate and finance teams to deliver seamless, timely, commercial and efficient outcomes.

We combine exceptional knowledge of Australia’s tax regime with international best practice and experience. Our strong track record has led to our involvement in broader tax policy discussions through representation on industry bodies and government consultations, providing us with invaluable insight into the policy direction that can influence transactions.

We also regularly provide strategic advice to clients who are navigating audits and inquiries from revenue authorities.

Our tax team is connected globally and covers cross-border tax issues through Corrs being the Australian member of Taxand, the world’s largest independent tax organisation (see www.taxand.com). We can and do call on the assistance of specialist tax advisory firms in over 50 countries to ensure any of our clients' cross-border tax issues are addressed.
