- Negotiation in tax
History shows us that economic turbulence tends to empty state coffins, which pushes the government to intensify tax collection, which then leads to tax disputes. We are ready for that, but sometimes you might want to consider negotiations instead.
When negotiating with tax authorities you are up against the creature with a financial strength of the whole country, human resources hundred times exceeding yours, flexibility of a rock and the power to change rules of the game at any moment.
Therefore, we have a dedicated team for Tax negotiations. They understand the thinking of a state and this allows them to correctly project your expectations and shape your behavior even before you consider negotiating. They have significant experience in dealing with the taxman, both at the central and local levels. This allows them to understand how far the authorities may go at the negotiations table and reach the best possible solution.
A good track record allows our team to make reasonable predictions as to the outcome of the negotiations or the outcome of the dispute if no compromise is reached. For you this allows to predict the financial impact of a chosen path.
