We provide comprehensive legal advisory services in the field of taxation. Our firm’s Tax Department has assisted in a whole range of optimalisation processes, including several dozen in the field of share sales in public companies and in the use of national or foreign holding companies. Our methods of optimalisation include founding holding companies, running holding companies in a tax-neutral manner, sales of shares by holding companies as well as tax-free transfers of incomes from holding companies to their beneficiaries. In each of these cases, we have received beneficial decisions from tax authorities on behalf of our clients.
The tax department of our Firm also assists in recovering overpaid taxes. We represent our clients in proceedings with administrative entities and administrative courts, including the Supreme Administrative Court. We assist our clients in obtaining beneficial court decisions in the administrative courts, a number of which have been precedence- setting. We have assisted clients in recovering millions in overpaid taxes, including interest counted from the day of the tax payment, and our cases have on occasion led to important changes in the practice of the tax authorities.
We have wide experience in appearing on behalf of our clients before the European Court of Justice. Our experienced team is led by Łukasz Adamczyk, who represented a client in case number C-42/14 in the ECJ, which ended in the formative sentence which shaped payment practices of VAT on rentals in the member countries of the EU.
