The thousands of mergers, acquisitions, and start-ups that have characterized the past ten years of business have created an increasing number of corporations in financial trouble: specifically, a shortage of venture capital or quick cash. Consequently, bankruptcy protection is now viewed as a strategic move to protect corporations from their creditors and allow them to reorganize. Bankruptcy and Insolvency Taxation, Third Edition provides the answers to the questions financial managers will have on the tax aspects of the "bankruptcy strategy."
