Tax Effects of Business Combinations

A live webinar with Rebecca Kelly, CPA

December 15, 1pm EST – 2 credits

Tax Effects of Business Combinations

Timely and technically accurate tax accounting is indispensable to a successful business combination. The business combination rules under ASC 805-740 are very complex and can be difficult to understand and apply in the midst of closing a deal.

This course provides a basic roadmap to understand and account for the fundamental tax effects of business combinations. Taught in a series of steps and case studies, this course will provide instruction on how to identify and measure the following, based on the acquisition type (taxable versus nontaxable):

  • Deferred taxes for assets acquired/liabilities assumed
  • Goodwill
  • Contingent consideration
  • Valuation allowance
  • Change in ownership matters

Upon completion of this course participants will be able to:

  • Apply key tax concepts and terminology related to business acquisitions
  • Compute deferred taxes for assets acquired and liabilities assumed
  • Compute component 1 and component 2 goodwill
  • Compute amortization of goodwill post acquisition
  • Analyze the impact of business combinations on valuation allowances
