Tax consultancy practice

The tax team at HAVEL & PARTNERS is comprised of fifteen specialists and consultants who have long and extensive experience from three of the Big Four companies (EY, PwC and Deloitte) and are prepared to assist clients in all fields of local and, to a considerable extent, international taxes. Members of the team who operate primarily in Prague and, to a limited extent, in Bratislava, are able to provide excellent tax services to multinational corporations, local business groups, private clients and their families.

We ensure that legal and tax services are very closely linked to each other with the aim of providing clients with complete services in one place. A tax team that is an integral part of the legal practice structure and the presence of tax attorneys establishes a unique degree of interconnection of tax and legal agendas and thus creates the maximum synergy of services in these two areas.
