Tax issues frequently lie at the core of asset and structured finance, and getting the tax right for the owner, lessee or potential user and any other parties involved is usually ‘mission critical’.

Corrs is a one-stop-shop for all the tax and legal documentation aspects of financing, providing the best advice on structuring, treatment and documentation. We also are best placed to advise how tax reforms will impact the treatment of transactions.

Export credit financings are becoming more common in relation to financing assets in Australia, including in major projects and PPPs. The Corrs team is well-versed in all aspects of such financings.

We have intimate knowledge of how assets and equipment fit into the underlying business, and, most importantly how they will help drive productivity or expansion of a business. Our approach to issues is both strategic and commercial.
