Financial Law, Tax Law and Customs Law

In the area of financial law we provide comprehensive legal advice to Slovak and foreign entities that render financial services to the Slovak and Czech market such as financial intermediation, provision of consumer credits and other loans. We assist clients in filing applications for authorisations to carry out activities under special regulations – for example, in the procedure for granting the authorisation to provide consumer credits. In our advisory work we are engaged in setting and coordinating the procedures carried out by these entities with respect to the relevant legal rules and legislative changes, in the development of terms and conditions, internal regulations, submissions to the relevant authorities as well as representation before the supervisory authorities (the National Bank of Slovakia, the Czech National Bank, and others).

We are also experienced advisers to companies engaged in digital currencies (crypto currencies).

We focus on the area of tax law, too, giving our clients legal advice on tax regulations and their application. In cooperation with leading tax advisers we have been focused on the issue of taxes, particularly income tax and withholding tax and its application. Also, we assist clients in tax proceedings and in any judicial proceedings before state authorities. As part of the provision of representation services in tax audits, we provide clients with a comprehensive legal representation service in the matter of tax audits performed by the tax office, from the initial analysis of documents and documents submitted by clients, their evaluation, processing legal analysis, proposing further action. we represent the client in proceedings before the tax office, where our main task is to exercise the client's rights in tax proceedings and perform any other acts in the client's interest, whether before the first instance tax office or in proceedings before the Financial Directorate, or in court proceedings, and this also at oral hearings, especially with regard to the preparation of an effective tax defense in the proceedings. During the entire inspection period, we ensure that the rights of the inspected entity are clearly observed by the tax office and that the statutory deadlines are observed. In the event of any suspicion of a breach of the law by the tax administrator, we object to this procedure on behalf of the client and use statutory remedies in order to achieve an effective remedy.

When representing the client in tax audits, we perform all related obligations on behalf of the client so that the client has enough time to continue to devote to his business and that the tax audit does not represent an excessive and disproportionate burden that would negatively affect his business. In the field of tax law, we provide clients with professional advice and preparation of legal opinions in order to optimize their business from a tax point of view, especially with regard to the applied tax rates and tax regimes.
