Controversy and Dispute Resolution
We provide support throughout the controversy cycle, from risk profiling and mitigation measures, to assisting with queries from revenue authorities, engaging with revenue authorities (both local and abroad) and providing expert technical input in the event of litigation.
In addition to the above, a key part of this service is assistance with establishing advance pricing agreements (APAs) on intercompany transactions to achieve compliance with the tax requirements in the various regions where you may operate before disputes arise. This can be especially helpful for decreasing the risk of double taxation across countries and mitigate any transfer pricing risks relating to the intercompany transactions. Our team includes specialists in local, national and cross-border tax requirements across Africa.
A proactive response to enquiries from tax authorities is important in helping resolve disputes when they do arise. We assist clients by applying our expertise and diverse skills to advise you on tax disputes in order to resolve them as efficiently as possible. This includes advising on advance pricing agreements (APAs), mutual agreement procedures (MAP), field agent adjustments and appeals.
