Tax Controversy

Tax disputes are on the rise and tax authorities become more critical of tax driven structures. An increasing number of taxpayers are scrutinized for tax optimizations which is often equated with illegal acts such as tax evasion or fraud. In case of a potential tax dispute we will choose the strategy together with you, and serve your interest.

Tax administrations worldwide are taking a stricter view on tax planning. This trend is also prevalent in the Netherlands since the Dutch tax authorities have become stricter when dealing with taxpayers what manifests through a more skeptical attitude towards interpretation of data and/or facts presented for a review. At the same time, authorities benefit from widespread access to digital “big” data to scrutinize tax positions what presents a challenge, especially in the sector of dispute resolution.
