During a tax Tax inspection
Customs and fiscal inspection, the taxpayer is often unaware of his rights and the regulations limiting the actions of the tax office – and is thus exposed to abuse by officials. On the other hand, in many enterprises accounting records are kept inaccurately or to some extent incorrectly. Errors in bookkeeping in a inspection situation involve the risk of tax domination or seizure of part of the assets by the fiscal authorities.
We offer a comprehensive service of checking and preparation of accounting records for the purpose of the inspection and representation of the taxpayer before the tax office.

In this regard, our law firm offers the service of representing entrepreneurs before KAS officials and customs and tax officials.
