PwC Tax & Legal has a vast team that leverages an extensive network across Spain and globally to attract complex international taxation and transfer pricing mandates. The law firm handles advisory mandates relating to the calculation of existing tax liabilities or the design and implementation of corporate restructurings. The team advises on the design of tax-efficient remuneration plans for managers or expatriate employees. PwC has a highly regarded indirect tax practice which represents major clients in tax inspections and in high-profile litigation challenging the interpretation of Spanish VAT rules. PwC wins instructions on the tax due diligence and structuring of M&A transactions, often in tandem with corporate lawyers from other Spanish firms. It also handles contentious and non-contentious Spanish customs matters.
