In the UK, the rewritten corporation taxes acts of recent years have introduced a whole new set of statutory references with which tax practitioners have had to get familiar. Transactional documents have had to be updated and, in addition, there have been some significant changes to the law, in particular in the UK's Finance Act 2011, which all need to be reflected in the tax schedule. The negotiations between tax lawyers and advisers, lined up against each other on the sale of a company or business, can sometimes become so complex that the commercial reality of the transaction - a sale by a willing seller to a willing buyer - is lost. The purpose of the tax schedule is to determine where responsibilities and risks will lie following the completion of the transaction. This book explains the underlying rationale of the key provisions of the tax schedule in the UK, and provides model long-form and short-form warranties and tax indemnities. These are also included on a CD-ROM so that practitioners can download and adapt the model documents for their own transactions. The book will be essential for tax lawyers, tax accountants, corporate lawyers, corporate advisors, and finance directors who are involved in the process of the sale of a company in the UK. Contents includes: the transactional process * due diligence * warranties * the sale and purchase of a company * the sale and purchase of a business * special situations * share scheme issues * venture capital schemes * group issues * the tax schedule in the sale and purchase of a company.
