Our commitment to include tax amongst our services derives from the fact that tax is affecting more and more the daily life of our clients, individuals and companies as well. As a firm dedicated to be as close as possible to its clients and given the risks and challenges they face when dealing with tax matters, we provide more and more tax services both in non contentious and contentious matters. We offer to companies, not-for profit organisations, individuals, a range of services in relation with their needs. We do not hesitate when we face complex tax deals or cases, to include in our team external experts or consultants with whom we use to collaborate in order to deliver to our clients a diligent and effective service.
In 2010, we advised in collaboration with a leading law firm based in Madrid, Spain, on a cross border M&A involving a UK airline company with a Spanish one. On the occasion of the merger, all the assets and liabilities that belonged to the Spanish company including the assets assigned to the Senegalese branch had to be transferred by operation of law to a new Spanish-resident entity.
Our tax team advised on tax issues in relation to the project in light of the Senegalese law.
