Hi Gregory,

Tax due diligence is a comprehensive examination of the different types of taxes that may be imposed upon a particular business, as well as the various taxing jurisdictions in which it may have sufficient connection to be subject to such taxes.

If it is a pure domestic company with simple organization structure located in simple tax regime countries (both buyer and target cos.) like in Singapore / UAE/ Hong Kong, it is going to be an easy report hence we could rely on in-house professionals who are more familiar with evaluation of a commercial venture from a tax perspective.

Typically in large deals / cross-border deals, to avoid overpaying for a target, understand the exposure on currency differences, tax differences, employment differences, accounting differences and regulatory hurdles, it is advisable to engage 3rd party tax consultants. Unsure whether my view on your question and thoughts make sense.
