Selling a company for equity

I am in the process of incorporating a company that will be sold next year in return for equity in an existing business.
My question is, will I pay tax on the value of the equity that I receive (not a publicly traded company) at the time of the transaction or at the time of final liquidation?

Thanks in advance for your help-
