BDO Law contributes Latvian chapter to the Chambers & Partners Tax Controversy Guide 2019

03 June 2019

BDO Law tax experts have contributed to the Chambers & Partners newest project "Tax Controversy guide 2019"

This guide presents an excellent overview of the main aspects of tax controversies that are common and distinct in 24 jurisdictions, but also provides a very interesting global analysis of trends: the origin and causes of tax controversies; the continuous efforts to combat tax avoidance and evasion; the means to mitigate and manage tax risks and to be aware of the best ways to settle the cases; and, finally, strategies in the context of an administrative or judicial litigation.

The reader will also be able to gather comparative information on all the phases of tax litigation in each jurisdiction, either in domestic or cross-border disputes, and will be able to garner an idea of costs and statistics in the ambit of tax litigation, including the number of cases and the likelihood of successful outcomes for tax authorities and taxpayers.

"We are delighted to be invited as the exclusive contributor from Latvia to this guide, thanks to our tax teams talents, experience and creative approach which is also recognised in both the Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 directories, ranking us as the top tier tax firm and prominent practitioners achieved every year since its foundation" - says Vita Liberte, BDO Law Managing Partner.

The chapter was written by Janis Zelmenis, Vita Liberte, Jelena Bartule, Valts Sturmanis and assisted in its creation by Darta Eglite
