Together we are always one step ahead

Tax & Estate Planning

Tax law is one of UGB’s most significant areas of specialization. Our lawyers have gained unique experience not only practicing in law firms but also within tax advisory firms. At the same time, our accounting knowledge creates unique prerequisites for providing high-quality tax and legal counselling.

In the area of tax and tax optimization, we provide services related to transfer pricing, tax structuring of transactions, direct taxes, VAT, excise duties, local taxes, customs duties and charges, tax aspects of employing foreigners and posting employees, wage costs, deductible items, and tax inspections.

We also represent clients in tax proceedings before tax authorities, as well as in judicial reviews of decisions issued in tax proceedings and, last but not least, we provide tax-legal compliance program services.
