Our Tax Disputes Group is made up of members of our Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department and our leading Tax Department. The Group works on an integrated basis with the other groups in the firm and advises on all aspects of tax disputes. The combination of litigators and tax lawyers is a highly effective means of conducting a tax dispute as it combines an in-depth technical and policy-based analysis of the relevant tax issues with an appreciation of strategy, tactics and process that are second nature to a litigator.
We have a wealth of experience litigating, arbitrating and resolving tax disputes relating to all taxes, including corporation tax and capital gains tax disputes for large corporate and financial institutions, tax related disputes arising from corporate transactions, and indirect tax disputes with the Revenue Commissioners including VAT, stamp duty and other indirect taxes.
In addition, we have significant experience in advising clients on all aspects in respect of rates. We have represented clients in a number of high profile cases before the Valuation Tribunal and the High Court, including acting for the Minister for Communications in a rates matter concerning the Metropolitan Area Networks broadband scheme, the Injuries Board and on a case stated to the High Court in respect of rates issues concerning Westlink and the Dundalk Bypass.
We also advise on all issues relating to the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) and Tax Information Exchange Agreements (TIEAs).
