Tax issues virtually lie under every business operation, plan and transactions – whether it is domestic or international or cross-border. Tax rules and regulations are more than considerations, most of the time they are the driving force behind a business strategy, structure and deal completion. It is easier to have a specialist by your side to navigate through the territory of legal tax planning. Our team of expert tax lawyers support clients from advising on strategy to resolving disputes. SLF advises businesses and individuals on every step of the tax enquiry process from instigation of the enquiry through its ultimate resolution, whether by negotiation or dispute resolution or litigation. Our lawyers also deal with the claims that are outside the purview of the enquiry process and have represented clients on all levels of tribunals and courts.
