acquisition financing ideas

Anyone got any ideas on how to finance an acquisition that would not trigger a heavy tax consequence in the year of the acquisition? As thought about a payment plan type structure for this deal, but it would mean that the full value would still be taxable in the year the deal is done?

to add to the above… basically innovative ways to defer tax of an acquisition out longer

I don’t really know. Perhaps arrange to lose money on the deal? Then it won’t be taxed.

na that wont work

pay the sellers with stock
