Taxation

The multidisciplinary approach of our service requires developing expertise on tax matters relevant to the business of our clients or to specific transactions or projects, and our team includes members having extensive experience in such matters.
 
Our tax practice combines the expertise of transaction lawyers with litigators who have specialist experience in tax disputes and investigations. We represent clients in or in relation to enquiries and investigations by the tax authorities and conducting appeals before the courts. Our work on corporate transactions is supported by our experience in handling tax challenges.  
 
More specifically, we provide to our international and local clients:
  • Advice on tax aspects of M&A, private equity or real estate transactions (including delivery of tax legal opinions), as well as in relation to different forms of corporate or business reorganization;
  • Advice and assistance in relation to the application of double taxation treaties and related national law provisions (mainly with respect to withholding tax on income relating to interest, dividends, capital gains with respect to share or asset transactions, liquidation quotas upon dissolution of companies, as well as on royalties or fees for rendering technical (including consulting) or management services), including representation before the Bulgarian tax authorities in relevant procedures;  
  • Representation before the National Revenues Agency of Bulgaria or the Bulgarian Customs Agency and in the courts in disputes resulting from tax inspections and involving VAT or corporate income tax issues, or relating to imposition or refund of excise duties, respectively.
