The Role of an International Tax Attorney

When a company wants to expand their activities aboard, an international tax attorney can advise them in choosing the most efficient structures to best achieve their goals. The global structure could have a significant impact on the group’s tax burden. For example, new projects could be funded by internal or external debt, or equity. This financial decision could change the tax burden of each company involved in the funding structure. However, countries have interests and hybrid rules in order to avoid unorthodox funding structures, which could result in profit shifting. The consequences of violating those rules could lead to severe penalties.

The founding partner of THEVOZ Attorneys is an experienced tax attorney, with expertise on these complicated international anti-abuse rules and regulations.

International tax attorneys defend and advise clients during international tax litigations. International tax litigation can begin when two countries tax the same taxpayer for the same income. Tax treaties generally contain an arbitration or a mutual agreement procedure to reduce the risk of double taxation, and international tax attorneys are expert in these proceedings.

An international tax attorney can assist a taxpayer who is accused by the tax authorities for using hybrid mismatch arrangements, artificial shift incomes, or other tax abuse schemes. Only an attorney with a broad experience in international tax law is capable of defending such taxpayer in front of authorities and courts.

International tax attorneys also assist their clients in exchange of information procedures. In the last ten years, new relevant tax treaties on this matter have been introduced. However these procedures could be applicable for client tax and commercial confidential information; therefore, international tax attorneys could obtain a waiver on behalf of the client refusing the transmission of confidential information to another country.

Why You Need a Tax Attorney

Whether you are a working individual or a large corporation, paying taxes will be a necessary part of your quarterly or yearly operations. Tax law is complex and could change with the political environment. For this reason, there can be severe ramifications that only visible to a tax attorney. Therefore, hiring a tax lawyer can benefit you in several different ways:

  1. Saves Time – Taxes are a complicated system to understand. An individual or business group would have to spend countless amounts of hours discerning what tax codes are applicable to their business within—or outside of—the United States. Hiring a tax lawyer frees up this time that would be better spent in operating other avenues.
  2. Tax Accuracy – Tax rules are complex because they are stated in many different sources. Individuals and businesses who are looking to establish their roots in the U.S. or on foreign soils have trusted us in planning their business and tax structures so the clients have a brief understanding of potential tax liabilities.
  3. Tax Strategy – Having a solid tax strategy in mind when structuring deals and income because it is important to evaluate the best method to structure each deal. Depending on which side the client is at, the deal can be structured as an asset sale, sale of equity or a mix. Not understanding proper tax and income consequences can cause discrepancies which may warrant an audit.
  4. Legal Compliance – With a tax lawyer, staying up to date with current tax law has never been easier. Since tax law is constantly changing, having someone who is dedicated to assist in tax matters can prevent run-ins with the IRS or other tax-regulatory agencies.

The reality of doing taxes and interpreting tax law without the help of an experience tax attorney can present legal issues and discrepancies that can hurt businesses and stifle economic growth on a global scale. Our law firm works to create a strategy that minimizes or eliminates the risk of falling out of compliance with complicated tax laws.
