A change in corporate structure gives rise to a variety of tax implications. At CRZ, the accountants and lawyers analyse each client’s situation on a case-by-case basis, assessing the impact on its organisation; from there, they identify tax scenarios and develop recommendations designed to create the optimal restructuring model for each unique situation. At CRZ, key considerations include:
■ Engineering complex operations, such as corporate restructuring, mergers, and acquisitions, all of which CRZ professionals are experts at
■ A tax-related cost/benefit analysis of each proposed strategy
■ An in-depth analysis of regulations governing both federal and local taxes
■ Evaluation and proposal of applications for special authorizations as required by revenue agencies or other government entities
■ Specialised collaborations with Mexican market securities law experts for solutions involving share and investment instrument placements on stock exchanges in Mexico and around the world

In addition, the firm has aimed towards assisting its clients regarding complex audits practiced by the tax authorities and resolving them, among other means, by alternative dispute resolution mechanisms such as mutual agreement procedures, advanced pricing agreements, as well as representation before the Mexican Tax Ombudsman. The range of its professional practice also includes an expanded specialised international trade and customs division and an area solely dedicated to transfer pricing.
