If you require 100% certainty in advance on a technical fiscal standpoint or if you need your Dutch tax position to be certified, we can assist with the preparation of a tax opinion or (depending on your preferences) the negotiation of a tax ruling.
In the Netherlands it is generally possible to obtain certainty in advance on taxation matters (tax rulings). This may relate to advance certainty on your tax position in an anticipated transaction or structure or to a compromise on specific tax issues resulting from processing a tax return or a tax audit. We have broad experience in negotiating with the tax authorities.
In many discussions with the tax authorities it appears that the tax inspector has not interpreted relevant facts and circumstances correctly. By definition the tax inspector has a lack of information and is dependent on the information provided by you or your tax advisor. Discussions with the tax inspector often escalate as a result of a wrong understanding of facts and circumstances. Such discussions can easily get out of control and result in tax assessments which you then have to contest in court. We can represent you in discussions with the tax authorities in a professional and efficient way and make sure that your tax position is respected and the discussion stays under control.
We can represent you towards the tax authorities in the context of a tax audit, negotiations with the tax inspector, or tax litigation or mediation.
It is nowadays not always easy to keep a good relationship with the tax inspector and sometimes futile discussions can easily escalate in a no-winners conflict. Our knowledge of tax law and our decade's experience with dealing with the tax office and tax inspectors, helps us to maintain a good relationship with the tax inspector and to avoid unnecessary conflicts and court procedures.
If however we have to go to Court, we will not hesitate and do so in a professional and reliable way, with a 100% dedication to the best end result for you as our client.
