We provide tax advisory services to international clients wishing to do business and invest in Kuwait, as well as Kuwait based clients with international business activities and investments.
Our tax practice assists and advises clients wishing to do business in Kuwait on how Kuwait taxation will affect their business and how to structure their business in a tax-efficient manner.
Mergers and Acquisitions
We provide our clients with tax due diligence on acquisitions; a review of tax aspects of the transaction including reviewing tax clauses in sale and purchase agreements; and advice on tax-efficient structuring of the transaction including optimum financing.
We assist clients to ensure that personal wealth is protected and preserved in a tax-efficient manner and advise on secure succession structures. This is particularly important when assets such as real estate are located in different countries and may be subject to prohibitive foreign income tax, capital gains tax, inheritance tax, and transfer taxes without proper planning.
We advise clients on how to get ready for VAT due to be introduced in Kuwait and in the GCC generally, including managing VAT impact studies and transaction mapping necessary for VAT implementation.
