The team of tax specialists of Holla legal & tax has extensive experience in all aspects of fiscal law. We advise and litigate on behalf of corporations and their stakeholders, government institutions and high net worth individuals. Our clients are active in a variety of sectors, and we have longstanding relationships with clients in platform economy, ICT, media, health care, and more.
Our philosophy is that fiscal advice and planning has to be managed within the bigger context. A fiscal matter is usually linked to various other legal and commercial aspects. Holla’s tax experts can offer integrated fiscal and legal advice, if necessary, completed by the knowledge of experts from other practice groups. In addition to that, we have an excellent relationship with the Tax Authorities. We frequently consult and negotiate with them about our clients’ tax position, while offering the benefits of attorney-client privilege.
Our fiscal experts assist in and advise on matters regarding corporate tax, VAT, transfer tax and personal income tax, examples of which are:
- Shareholders’ agreements
- Directors’ liability with regards to turnover-, corporate-, and income tax
- Tax audits/due diligence
- Tax optimisation
- Attachment and seizure by tax authorities
- Objection/appeal tax assessment

One of the areas in which we have particular expertise is the deployment of freelancers and tax issues related to that.
