1. Corporate Valuation and Advisory
Corporate valuation refers to providing a professional valuation opinion relating to shareholder’s equity or the overall value of a corporation. Valuations play an important role when a corporation goes through a significant transaction involving a merger or acquisition, or when bringing in a new joint venture partner or strategic partner. Carrying out transactions at a fair and reasonable price is important from both a business perspective and tax perspective.
Grant Thornton Taiwan’s valuation team can assist you to gain an understanding of the value of a target company. Through resources available in the Grant Thornton global network, as well as our database, we can closely analyze each and every transaction, and provide rational reasoning for the valuation work that we complete.
2. Opinion relating to fair price
Taiwan regulations require public companies to obtain an opinion letter from an independent CPA firm relating to fairness of the price for a proposed M&A deal.
Grant Thornton Taiwan has extensive experience in helping clients to meet compliance requirements. We are seen by many international companies as a preferred choice especially when seeking a professional firm that is not associated with its current auditor for independence purposes.
3. Valuation for meeting tax requirements
The Taiwan tax office closely scrutinizes the value of intangibles derived from a merger or acquisition transaction. If supporting documents are not well prepared, the tax office can disallow tax deduction claims for intangibles derived from a merger or acquisition transaction. Grant Thornton Taiwan’s valuation team has extensive experience and can help you to meet tax requirements and reduce tax risk.
