Tax

With a team of more than 150 specialist tax lawyers, qualified in jurisdictions around the world, we are perfectly placed to handle even the most complex tax issues. Whatever your situation, we have the knowledge and experience to find a solution.

Complying with tax law can be challenging for individuals and businesses, especially for those with interests around the world.

With an unrivalled team of more than 150 personal and corporate tax lawyers, Withers is always ready to assist in domestic and international tax planning.

Our advice is knowledgeable, reliable and solution-focused. We excel in solving cross-border and multi-jurisdictional problems. Our global team of tax attorneys includes US, UK, Australian, Japanese, Singaporean, Luxembourg, PRC, Indian, New Zealand, Russian and Italian qualified lawyers and tax advisors, all with significant international capabilities. Several are qualified in more than one jurisdiction, including a team of US tax lawyers who work in our London, Geneva, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Singapore offices, to provide integrated advice to clients in their own time zone.

We work with a broad range of successful individuals, families and companies on their interests in more than 100 countries. Our private clients include entrepreneurs, artists, athletes and city professionals. Our tax solicitors advise families who have held wealth for generations, and individuals who have received an unexpected ‘windfall’. Corporate clients include many household names amongst fashion brands, financial services firms and hotel and hospitality companies.

We were quoted by Legal 500 EMEA 2021 as a department that is 'unique in being able to offer competence and efficiency in a great variety of areas. This variety of skills, possible only through the great synergy developed between the team members, allows us to offer our own clients efficient solutions from a variety of points of view, without leaving anything to chance.'

Seeing the bigger picture

Whatever your situation, we can help with your tax planning, when necessary consulting with leading colleagues in areas such as trusts, wealth planning, immigration and employment. This full-service offering is something that accountancy firms cannot match.

We advise on the tax benefits of charitable giving and philanthropy, an area in which we have particular experience, acting for more than 50% of the leading charities in the UK alone. And we can advise when things go wrong, with a team dedicated to tax investigations and controversy.

A wealth of experience

Each situation is different, but as a firm established more than a century ago, we can draw on a wealth of previous cases when assessing new ones. Looking to the future, we also stay on top of legislative developments, advising on the implications of major election results and keeping you ahead of tax law changes in different countries.

Throughout the world many countries have committed to redefining banking secrecy laws so as to no longer protect any form of tax offense and/or adopt more stringent information sharing standards in tax law matters. This shift to greater transparency and information sharing has caused an increase in the number of individuals seeking to divulge previously unreported income and become compliant.

Global understanding

Across the Americas, Europe and Asia, governments have offered various streamlined measures or amnesty programs in an effort to get individuals back into the tax net. Our experienced team of tax solicitors have helped thousands of individuals and families around the world negotiate these amnesty programs and put their tax affairs in order.
