Unfortunately, there’s no straight answer to this. It will depend on where the acquirer is located, what industry you are in, the details of you own personal tax situation, and a myriad of other factors. You’ll want to consult with a CPA that specializes in startup taxation, as any advisory services will be tailored to your unique situation. The guidance will pay for itself many times over and is worth the investment.

Feel free to reach out to me (Kruze Consulting) if you need any help: I’m a CPA and I help over 500+ startups. In the past I’ve worked at Deloitte Tax and was the Controller of a 120+ employee startup. Our COO Scott Orn is a Kellogg MBA, former VC Partner at Lighthouse Capital Partners, and before that was an investment banker at JPMorgan.
