Restructuring and foreign settlements

International tax

In the course of our projects we provide Clients with solutions that allow them to increase their control and tax safety.

From the perspective of enterprises that do business within international structures or have dealings with foreign entities it is crucial to develop an appropriate international tax strategy, especially for investors that plan restructuring projects or want to transfer part of their business abroad in order to manage assets more effectively. 

Building an international strategy requires experience and knowledge about the opportunities offered by foreign tax regimes and the changing regulations of double tax treaties.  This insight is particularly important in view of the recent modifications of the Polish tax regulations, inter alia the introduction of controlled foreign corporation tax, new transfer pricing requirements and double tax avoidance clauses.

Hence, enterprises should set great store by the properly planned and implemented business model that can increase their potential for development, and they should also be aware of the double taxation risks involved.

How can we help?

We have many years of experience in strategic advice and business restructuring, especially in the sphere of development and implementation of solutions that increase the effectiveness of business activities and management of double taxation risks. 

We offer our assistance in the planning of restructuring and we support clients in development of tax solutions that are specifically tailored to the needs of their businesses.
