How we help you:

Objections and Appeals: LJT’s tax specialists will be pleased to represent you during negotiations with tax authorities for the purposes of settling assessment notices or contesting such notices before the courts, whichever the case may be.

Net Worth Assessments: Tax authorities generally issue such assessments if, upon verifying files from various departments, they notice discrepancies between the value of the taxpayer’s assets and the income declared by the same taxpayer. If you wish to contest a net worth assessment, we will assist you in the preparation of your file in order to clarify your situation for the tax authorities.

Request for Advance Ruling: If it is important to know with certainty the tax consequences of operations that are being contemplated, our tax team will prepare and present the appropriate request for advance ruling.

Voluntary Disclosure: In the eventuality that you wish to correct any discrepancies in your tax declarations, our tax team will be able to evaluate whether a voluntary disclosure is justified and if so, guide you through the process.
