We know the reality of family businesses and their contingencies, and are able to offer support in structuring them in an efficient manner, respecting the values and guidelines established by the family group . We aim to accompany them in the day to day development of their business and through generational changes, preparing options that respond to the particular needs of the family.
The beginning of any business requires special support, focusing not only on your present concerns, but also on future difficulties. We have a group of professionals concerned with the development of enterprises to accompany them from the beginning, so that they grow in a healthy and tax efficient way.
Large companies have special needs, either because they have supervisory bodies that regulate them and/or because their executives have to answer to a large number of shareholders, so their management needs to take into consideration various administrative and accounting regulations (IFRS). We can support them with specialized lawyers and auditors, so that their tax decisions comply with market requirements.
Our tax regulations recognize the right to exercise economy of choice, which allows clients to structure their operations in a tax efficient manner, at the level of the company or its owners. Creativity and knowledge of different structuring options allow us to provide the necessary support, without putting our clients’ business at risk.
Tax changes make it necessary to review the structure of business groups, with the objective of reducing the administrative burden and optimizing their tax efficiency.
We have tax and corporate lawyers and auditors who can support our clients to implement the required changes.
In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of disputes between taxpayers and the Chilean IRS. The disproportionate number of rulings in favor of the Chilean IRS is largely due to the fact that taxpayers tend not to have a good legal defense, which is why a group of experienced professionals, dedicated exclusively to litigation, are of fundamental support in all judicial instances.
Cross-border operations are a frequent occurrence; and with them comes the need to compatibilize two or more jurisdictions, in order to make the operations themselves tax efficient. We have access to a network of international firms that allows us to analyze operations considering both the tax effects in Chile and abroad..
The security of a transaction may require legal reports or opinions. The latter are also relevant in tax litigation defenses. We have professionals with vast experience that can provide you with the security and grounds to sustain a commercial operation with complex tax effects.
The new tax regulations have granted the Chilean IRS a series of new auditing powers, which, if not dealt with by the taxpayer in accordance with the criteria and instructions set forth by the authority, may result in tax liquidations or judgments. These can be avoided, if an efficient and orderly delivery of information is carried out. Our team of auditors and lawyers can support you in responding satisfactorily to the requirements of the authority.
