Equity transactions may influence the company's equity and the owners' tax positions, for instance payment that constitutes a repayment of paid-up share capital may be repaid tax-free to the owners. Equity transactions can adjust a company's equity upwards or downwards, but it may also be the consequence of structural changes in a company or group structures. Since equity transactions may have a significant impact on tax positions and wealth tax, one must be aware of any consequences related to different types of capital incidents and be in control of any private tax positions such as tax-free paid-up share capital, deductible risk-free returns and so on.
