It is not often that the Constitutional Court of South Africa (ConCourt) is required to make judgement on tax matters. It is even less common to have two separate Supreme Court Of Appeal (SCA) tax decisions on similar issues taken on appeal to the ConCourt.
Our tax lawyers provide the full range of tax services that address the complex challenges of international commerce and business operations as well as managing and resolving tax disputes.
Companies operating in the global economy experience complex tax issues, both in South Africa and in the jurisdictions in which they do business; this requires a coordinated global delivery of services incorporating both knowledge of national legislation, including tax treaties, as well as the appropriate international perspective.
The South African tax team also assists clients in structuring a wide range of transactions, from private equity deals to corporate acquisitions and disposals.
We provide these international tax services while at the same time offering clients the benefits of the attorney-client and work-product privileges.
