Tax Audits and Defense
Our multidisciplinary team has significant experience designing defense strategies against possible observations from the SUNAT (Peruvian Tax Authority).
However, we do not limit our work only to designing the strategy. We also provide effective support to our clients in preparing analyses and gathering the supporting documentation of their transactions. We accompany our clients in meetings with SUNAT’s audit team, and prepare the responses to the requests for information from SUNAT. We can even appoint a member of our specialized staff to directly assist tax auditors and to be in charge of the audit process under your company’s supervision, and following your company’s guidelines.
In the cases where SUNAT imposes tax penalties on taxpayers, and these do not agree with such decision, we are able to assume the sponsorship of the contentious tax proceeding that would originate to defend our client’s position, at all administrative levels, and even before the Judicial Branch or the Constitutional Court, if applicable. We take over the sponsorship from the beginning or, if necessary, we can do so in any other instance of the procedure or, without taking over the sponsorship, we help refocus and improve the defense strategies of any case upon request of the taxpayer and/or their legal advisors.
We have a solid record of successful tax audits and won cases in different instances, based on well-structured defense strategies and approaches with convincing arguments.
