Tax / Customs

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

The firm’s expert handling of tax procedures makes it a privileged partner for companies in their dealings with government departments, both in its consultancy work (obtaining and implementing a special tax system), in disputes, to assist the company and its corporate officers facing a tax inspection, and in defending them whenever the dispute is taken before the courts.

In close collaboration with stakeholders in the airport sector, Chesneau Fischel also advises companies handling international flows of goods on setting up economic customs systems.

In addition, the firm assists company directors in optimizing the various components of their remuneration package (salary, stock options, allocation of bonus shares), their personal wealth and their investments.
