Resolution of Tax Disputes in UAE
With the help of our tax and litigation experts in UAE, tax disputes may be resolved in any of the following ways:
- Alternative dispute resolution – the settlement of a dispute that is outside a courtroom with the help of a third-party who will be acting as the mediator;
- Ruling of the court – settlement of a tax dispute in a courtroom
Prior to a case being sent to a local court, the opposing part and the tax authority in UAE have to try in coming to a settlement or agreement with the use of an independent party. A third party is always neutral to all sides to a dispute. The mediator will be helping not only the tax authority but also the business in resolving issues. In the event that an agreement isn’t reached, a case will be brought to the court and the judge will be the one to make a ruling.
Apart from providing assistance in coming up to an effective resolution for a tax dispute in UAE, the trusted advisers of the firm will offer you with the help and resources that you need in considering arrangements for tax planning. We are, therefore, very happy in providing you with second opinion on the planning structures of your business – either pre- or post-implementation (if the structure is being challenged and you’re currently considering the next few steps of the business).
When it comes to presenting an objection to the tax authorities, it is strongly advised to utilize the expertise of a litigation lawyer that is experienced in dealing with the local authorities and interpreting the legislation in UAE related to tax. A tax specialist may also be hired together with a litigation expert from the firm in order for you to produce the correct relevant documents to the FTA and FCA.
There is a need to put your best foot forward when completing the process, so you will also give yourself the best opportunity in resolving a case as early as possible within a tax dispute resolution process. If you are not sure of where to start, seek legal counsel first.
