You face a complex challenge. You want to optimize the tax planning of your investments and divestures in an environment which is constantly changing due to local, EU and OECD standards. You need to ensure a structure which is consistent and seen as appropriate by all relevant tax authorities.

Gowling WLG can help. We can minimize the exposure you face when it comes to tax audit and litigation – notably on international, intragroup and flows – from a transfer pricing, profit allocation and withholding tax perspective.

Our team has significant experience in establishing policies and documentation for transfer pricing and cross-border tax structures, as well as implementing French stock option plans and other employee share-based incentives.

The team can assist on:

  • M&A and internal restructuring tax support
  • Tax audit and disputes representation
  • Tax planning of in and outbound investments for corporations
  • Tax planning on relocations and expatriations for individuals (HNW individuals or managers of multinational enterprises)
  • Transfer pricing documentation

Our constant monitoring of tax changes and the legal environment means that we can offer you clear, comprehensive, pragmatic and personalised advice and innovative solutions.

You can also benefit from our deep experience in R&D-intensive and IP-rich industries, from life sciences to technology companies. We use the expertise of our specialist tax colleagues in Europe and Canada to provide integrated, cross-border tax advice.
