I can assist you with VAT Disputes and procedures

How can we help?

Value assessment of a case

Initially we will make a thorough evaluation of the case and provide a qualified recommendation for the further progress. For the assessment we will draw on the technical expertise we think has the right qualifications, and provide a professional and honest assessment of the case. Should the issue have international implications we can cooperate with our colleagues in the international PwC network consisting of offices and employees in more than 150 countries.

Formulation of a complaint

When the case has been thoroughly accounted for, it must be established whether one, for instance, should lodge an appeal against the decision. At this stage of the case we can assist with preparing a complaint or provide the tax authorities with other relevant documents. Several of our employees have their background from the tax authorities. Accordingly, we have the best grounds for good communication with the tax authorities. Good and result oriented communication is also important when preparing and formulating complaints and documents.

Dialogue with the tax authorities

A considerable part of our work consists of following up complaints and correspondence with the tax authorities, for instance the tax offices and the tax commission. Our network of contacts and experience from ongoing cases makes us well equipped to identify how the dialogue with the relevant authorities should be addressed to clarify and resolve your case in the best way. It is often possible to reach an agreement based on a thorough and professionally founded dialogue, and by good communication, creating an understanding of the case facts.

Assessing issues regarding court proceedings of the case

If an administrative complaint does not succeed, it may be necessary to make a reassessment of the case, especially if the process so far has revealed many new details. This assessment should be performed by several people, and may be brought into assessment by a relevant group of specialists. We can provide advice and be a discussion partner when assessing whether the dispute should be brought before court.

The district courts to the Supreme Court

We have long experience and good results to show to in solving litigations before the courts. At each stage of the case we also investigate the possibility of reaching an amicable settlement. It is precisely the fact that the case is brought before the courts that requires the state to appoint a counsel which is likely to look at the case with fresh eyes, and thus make an objective assessment of the case. It may then be possible to reach an agreement even though this has not earlier been possible.
