Arsene Taxand - Tax Audit and litigation

Arsene Taxand assists taxpayers (corporations and private individuals)

  • In tax audits
  • In tax litigations entered into with Tax Authorities, either in the case of a persistent dispute following a tax audit, or with a view to obtain the refund of wrongly paid taxes

Using their knowledge in the tax procedure rules and with the assistance of experts from our firm in the different areas of taxation, the goal pursued by our team is to obtain the best results for the taxpayers in the shortest time possible while maintaining a good relationship with Tax Authorities.

The team in charge of the tax audit and the litigation is notably head by Roland Schneider and Michel Taly.
