Tax audits and Litigation

Disputes with the French Tax Authorities (FTA) are becoming more significant to taxpayers as tax legislation has become increasingly complex and the FTA takes a more aggressive approach.

Our integrated team of tax lawyers and litigators recognise that tax-related disputes need to be resolved on terms that meet your strategic objectives, which must include a continuing relationship with the FTA. We appreciate that successful resolution of tax disputes requires an integrated assessment of your business needs and that the ongoing merits of the case must be re-evaluated at each stage of the proceedings.

  • Management of an arbitration procedure as part of a dispute relating to transfer pricing;
  • Advising a UK-based multinational in respect of a dispute relating to payroll tax;
  • Advising and acting for a listed French multinational for a dispute related to business tax.
