Tax law / Customs regulations

Chesneau Fischel accompanies businesses in the management of tax issues they encounter on a day-to-day basis and with their external growth or restructuring operations.

Its practice with tax procedures makes the Firm a preferred partner for companies in their dealings with government departments, both for consultancy work (for obtaining and implementing a special tax system) and in disputes, to assist the company and its executives facing a tax inspection, and to defend them whenever the dispute is taken before the courts.

His closeness to the players in the airport sector also leads the firm to advise companies handling international goods flows on setting up economic customs systems.

In addition, the Firm is involved with executives in order to optimize the different components of their remuneration (salary, stock options, allocation of free shares), their personal fortune and their investments.
