The Tax Advisory Division of Muşat & Asociaţii is recommended among the leaders of the local market by the British publisher International Tax Review, in its annual study World Tax 2013. Muşat & Asociaţii was ranked in the highest tier accessible to an independent law firm, according to research methodology, having proven significant expertise in all four areas under analysis: transfer prices, corporate tax, indirect tax and fiscal litigation.

The international recognition of the firm’s competences in this field awards our efforts to consolidate and integrate tax and legal assistance services, with a view to providing our clients with qualified support in all fiscal areas, from optimizing costs with taxes and levies relating to business restructuring, to minimizing customs duties or challenging and canceling in court certain decisions issued by tax authorities”, stated Mona Muşat, Managing Partner Muşat & Asociaţii.
According to the World Tax 2013 study, our tax advisory team “developed its expertise in all areas of tax and won many high-profile mandates” . The publication quotes the opinion of a client: “ I was impressed about the professionalism and pragmatic approach, which I find useful”.
