Our independence advantage means we can act quickly to deliver the answers you need and avoid audit-based restrictions. Our global capability allows us to assist clients on transactions involving multiple countries.

We have experience in litigating high profile tax cases for our clients and frequently guide them through the process covering the initial contact with the tax authority on a potential conflict until (if necessary) all the way up to the (European) Supreme Court. Our team of seasoned tax professionals is focused on providing practical solutions based on a strong technical foundation. We are partner-led, working in dedicated teams, to actively lead each engagement from start to finish. Taxand provides high quality, integrated tax advice worldwide.
