Tax Dispute Resolution

Multinational and local corporations are increasingly facing a challenging tax environment, with a substantial increase in the number of tax audits and assessments.

Our tax investigation specialists include former tax revenue officials, having several years of experience in dealing with the tax authorities.

We can assist you with all issues raised by the tax authorities, including negotiating and agreeing settlements with minimal tax liability.

Our experience working with the tax authorities has helped us develop an comprehensive knowledge of the litigation processes and methodologies. This allows us to get you a quick resolution of cases through negotiations with the revenue authorities.

When formal proceeding is required, our innovative approach helps us challenge the status quo, and set new boundaries in terms of the interpretation of legislation. In so doing, we have set a number of precedents for the benefit of our clients. We have assisted clients in the Privy Council where we achieved landmark judgements, saving clients significant amount of taxes.

We have handled hundreds of cases over the years for a wide range of clients and achieved a very high success rate. We have also successfully assisted clients in obtaining refunds from the tax authorities.

We have the expertise, experience and network to deliver value when you are faced with a dispute over taxation.
