We have a fully comprehensive tax practice which advises private and public companies, partnerships and individuals, both on a standalone basis and as part of an integrated service across our transactional and disputes teams.

We identify, anticipate and deal with tax issues, risks and compliance arising in a business or private context. We have represented clients in relation to the amendment of adverse legislative provisions and submitted reports to the Ministry of Finance proposing legislative changes, with a focus on tax incentives for attracting foreign investors.

Corporate Advisory
We have extensive experience in advising on company structuring, operation, planning and policy, asset ownership, executive and employee remuneration and benefits from a tax perspective. Our aim is to provide innovative solutions to complex issues, such as mitigating regulatory risk and meeting challenges and to prepare our clients for legislative changes. Our practice works closely with correspondent law firms and advisors on cross-border structuring and liability, the effect of double taxation treaties and transfer pricing. We also advise on VAT and all other types of indirect taxes and the tax treatment of the provision of services and supply of goods.
Corporate Transactional
Our team provides highly technical advice on the tax structuring, planning and implementation of a wide variety of corporate transactions, including securities offerings, financings, cross border and local mergers and acquisitions, reorganisations, restructurings and insolvencies, as well as inward and outward investments. We place emphasis on factoring in the risks of prospective or retrospective changes to legislation which will affect the life of a transaction or investment. Many of the deals we advise on have a cross-border aspect or involve companies which are active globally, and we work with international advisors and law firms to meet the challenges such transactions present and assimilate the obligations of the countries involved. We also advise extensively on the direct and indirect tax aspects of the sale and purchase of real estate and other assets.
Investigations & Disputes
Our team has extensive experience in acting in tax controversy matters arising from liability to a wide variety of issues, including corporate and personal tax, indirect taxes, regulatory and legislative compliance, transfer pricing, tax adjustments and accounting, bad debt provisions, fund transfers abroad and debt to equity issues. We represent individuals, partnerships and corporations in investigations, audits and dawn raids, and before the Tax Authorities and Administrative Courts and in challenges to Tax Authority decisions, technical enquiries, applications for rebates and settlements of fines and tax bills.
Wealth & Estate Planning
Our team is highly experienced in advising individuals and families on wealth and estate planning, the protection of assets, cross-border and domestic estate administration, the implications of the implementation of the OECD Guidelines and EU Directives on exchange of information. We offer advice on personal tax liabilities, post-death planning, co-ownership of assets and establishing family offices. We have an expertise in wealth and succession planning, often developing innovative structures to enable our clients to make use of, transfer and eventually devolve their wealth. We also represent clients in high value tax and estate disputes.
