The specialist will monitor compliance with applicable law and will not commit violations, for example, requesting documentation that tax representatives do not have the right to request.

Tax audit support will save your company from many possible problems. The lawyer will help to:

  • Check the credentials of auditors;
  • Clarify the existence of grounds for any action;
  • Detect violations during pre-audit activities (timely warning, availability in the plan).

Also, the lawyer will take over the interaction with the inspectors. The specialist can:

  • Warn inspectors if they go beyond the law;
  • Provide inspectors with correct answers to their questions;

In the presence of a specialist, the time required for inspection of regulatory bodies is significantly reduced. Also, a qualified lawyer will ensure the protection of the rights of a legal entity, and will not allow abuse of authority.

Types of checks

Tax audits are divided into two types:
• PLANNED. Visits of tax specialists are carried out according to the schedule. Inspection by state supervisory authorities for companies is scheduled every 12 months.
• EXTRAORDINARY. Procedures can be appointed based on complaints of organizations, or if the tax office or other authorities suspect that the taxpayer has not complied with legislative norms.

WHICH COMPANIES MAY BE INTERESTED IN LEGAL SUPPORT?

First of all, legal support is necessary for organizations that are required to undergo planned tax audits. In particular, we are talking about enterprises operating in jurisdictions where there is substance. If the substance is at the input stage in any country, and the specific inspection procedure has not yet been approved by the regulatory authorities, there are even more problems, and a company definitely needs an experienced lawyer. Maintenance will be needed by companies that need to obtain a license according to the type of their activities.

For example:

  • Financial organizations;
  • Cryptocurrency companies;
  • Gambling business.
