[Taxation Disputes]

Assistance with tax audits: What can the authorities do and not do? How realistic is the taxation department’s claim?

Disputes with the tax authorities: Clear and concise argumentation in order to reach a negotiated solution.

Disputes at court: Formulating arguments that can make a difference, based on a realistic assessment of your position.

[Counsel/Risk Assessment]

Risk assessments are becoming more and more important with regards to taxation advice, to test the resilience of a given structure vis-à-vis both the taxation administration or the courts.

The tax authorities are just as creative as tax payers these days. In addition to the various anti-abuse provisions, longer-standing legislation can also often be interpreted in new ways in order to counter a multitude of optimisation structures and strategies.

We closely monitor the tax authorities’ point of view and follow trends in taxation rulings.

[Regularization]

Our attorneys have been actively involved with all kinds of taxation regularizations, ever since the introduction of the first self-declaration legislation in 2004. Tuerlinckx Attorneys can advise you about the feasibility of regularizations and guide you through the procedure.

[Rulings]

Everything begins with a risk analysis to determine the priorities when obtaining legal certainty. Any fundamental uncertainties can often be accounted for by means of an advance ruling.
