Tax Uncertainty

We recommend proactively determining what your uncertain positions may be, rather than having revenue services do this and raising these areas in a dispute. When you know where your risks lie, you’re in control.

As our field is so exceptionally fast-paced and multi-faceted, we place a high premium on the ongoing education of our team, as well as our clients’ people. We enjoy collaboration with the International Institute for Tax and Finance  ( and the Thomas Jefferson School of Law, San Diego, CA, U.S in this regard.
