Tax and administrative litigation

The instability and ambiguity of tax regulations has been an on-going long-term concern for Romania’s business sector. The lack of predictability in the application of tax legislation has often caused complex tax disputes.

We are at our clients’ side every step of the way during any contentious proceedings including the control stage, the administrative jurisdictional stage and any final court proceedings.

Most recently we have been involved in high-value tax disputes and tax fraud criminal investigations, offshore fiscal treatment and double-taxation avoidance disputes, transfer pricing and connected party transaction disputes.
