Tuerlinckx Tax Lawyers is there to guide you, whatever your tax queries or problems. The firm provides assistance with tax audits and in discussions and disputes with the tax authorities, in both the administrative stage and court procedures.
What is it that the tax administration can or cannot do? How realistic is the claim submitted by the tax authorities? Which arguments can be used to resolve the matter in the client’s favour in court?
Prior decisions regarding tax discussions can provide the necessary legal certainty where required. Tuerlinckx Tax Lawyers has the required in-house expertise and experience to guide you and your advisors with the application.
In addition to traditional tax advice, the firm also carries out a tax risk analysis. It is not enough to devise a structure: it must also be able to withstand the scrutiny of the tax administration or even the courts.
The tax administration is often just as creative as the taxpayer himself when it comes to designing and combating tax structures and optimisations. Administrative positions and tax jurisprudence regarding anti-abuse provisions are closely followed by Tuerlinckx Tax Lawyers.
