Dispute Resolution - Tax Authority Audits

In a rapidly evolving commercial environment, fiscal authorities are often left lagging behind in adapting their local tax laws and how to apply those laws. This has led many such authorities to direct their limited resources more into the audit of a business’s tax returns and declarations.​

While businesses may take every measure to ensure they're complying with local tax laws, the interpretation and application of such laws means that there's not always a right or wrong answer. Perhaps the local law is unclear or purposely vague, or there may just be more than one way to interpret how a law or set of laws may be applied.​

If you find your business being audited by a fiscal authority, our tax specialists can help you. We can assist not only in the technical aspects of the audit – whether the local tax law has been applied appropriately – but also in managing the process of the audit.​

Our purpose is to get you the best possible outcome from any audit, financial or reputational, and to keep you on the best possible terms with the local authorities.

To take advantage of the global talent pool, companies are increasingly offering stock equity to attract and retain employees. The equity is usually awarded at a low cost in a pre-IPO phase, and in some cases involves globally mobile employees. Granting stock options to expatriate employees can introduce important tax obligations and risks in the home and host countries that are sometimes not fully understood by multinational employers.
