Our Tax Law Services
Tax Advice and Compliance
With a diverse pool of domestic and cross-border clients, we understand the complexities of commercial transactions with tax implications. To successfully resolve our clients’ legal issues, we partner with tax and accounting consultants to secure compliance with tax laws and mitigate possible risks.
We also advise clients on how to develop tax-effective structures for their international operations and transactions.
We have represented clients in tax litigation cases before the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), Court of Tax Appeals, Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court.
Some of the cases we have handled involve legal disputes on tax rulings and opinions, tax assessments, and claims for tax refund before the BIR and Court of Tax Appeals.
Tax Incentives Application
We will help determine your company’s eligibility for availing tax incentives from special government agencies that provide tax benefits to registered companies in the Philippines, such as the following:
- Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA)
- Board of Investments (BOI)
- Cagayan Economic Zone Authority (CEZA)
- Tourism Infrastructure and Economic Zone Authority (TIEZA)
After successful application, we will help maintain your company’s eligibility for the tax incentives granted by securing submission of reportorial requirements and informing you of any changes in the granting of incentives, application/reportorial requirements, and other related concerns.
Based on your eligibility, we will also help you assess which government agency to avail incentives from. We provide a detailed comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of registering with PEZA vs. BOI.
Estate / Family Wealth Planning
Our tax lawyers also assist clients in managing their family wealth by drafting wills, appointing executors, and properly distributing assets to their beneficiaries. We conduct thorough studies on the estates of our clients to provide the most tax-effective estate plan possible.
