LEAL COTRIM STANDS OUT FOR THE BROAD UNDERSTANDING OF THE COMPLEX BRAZILIAN TAX SYSTEM.

The choice of the most adequate corporate structure ― in the implementation phase of a project ―, the assessment of several possibilities for commercial and industrial operations ― still in the pre-operational phase of a project ―, the attention to compliance with tax obligations and the continuous follow-up of significant tax issues are essential to the success of any business activity in Brazil.

We provide tax legal services to national and foreign entities, assisting them in complying with their obligations towards Revenue Services and in the implementation of routine procedures aimed at optimizing their tax load in light of the applicable law.

Concomitantly, we assist in our clients’ specific projects, making our expertise available to them in order to seek the most efficient and sophisticated tax structure for their projects. Identifying tax benefits that may be claimed by our clients and the assistance in the design of operations with the lowest tax impact are services regularly provided by our team.

In addition, our lawyers have extensive experience in tax litigation, with a successful track record, in the representation of our clients’ interests, in administrative and court procedures concerning undue collections imposed by Revenue Services.
