Our recent work
- We advised a big Polish company specialising in the marketing of medical products and dietary supplements in relation to a tax audit. Our support also covered the preparation of internal procedures aiming at minimising a tax risk. (March – June 2016)
- We advised a Polish distribution company on issues related to transfer pricing litigation, including the verification of a transfer pricing model by local tax authorities.
- We advised a Polish public company listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange on issues related to the transfer of rights to future payments from a pool of receivables to another party in return for remuneration. The transaction was aimed at improving a cash flow of the initiator.
- We advised a Polish company (part of an international capital group) on a dispute related to tax implications of a cash pooling system. The dispute resulted from tax rulings issued by the Polish Minister of Finance applied for by the client. The case was analysed by the Polish District Administrative Court that supported the Minister of Finance’s standpoint. The case is waiting for being resolved by the Supreme Administrative Court.
