Legal disputes between taxpayers and tax authorities are on the rise. This trend concerns practically every tax jurisdiction. Furthermore, growing cooperation between tax authorities from different countries increases the risk of legal proceedings as a result of cross-border audits.
Tax controversy is an integral part of our comprehensive service offering. The team assists taxpayers during tax audits and represents them in negotiations with the tax authorities, whenever possible, and before the various national and international tax tribunals and courts, including hearings with judges and oral submission of the defence before administrative and judicial courts. Given our expertise in all aspects of material tax law, the tax controversy team can offer a unique combination of in-depth knowledge of both material and formal tax law. The firm handles all tax related disputes (personal income tax, corporate tax, international tax, VAT, Customs and Excise duty, inheritance tax, stamp duty, etc.).
Our integrated approach starts long before actual legal proceedings take place with pre-audit consulting to help identify risks and devise defence strategies. This is because the least costly dispute is usually the one you can avoid altogether.
