There are many pitfalls in Luxembourg tax procedures that can be easily overlooked. This can quickly lead to tax penalties and disputes for companies, as well as liability issues for those responsible.

A thorough knowledge of tax procedures is therefore the key to preventing disputes in the first place. However, not all tax disputes can be avoided. There has been a steady increase in the number of tax disputes in recent years and this trend is set to continue. Too often, tax disputes are lost, not on the merits of the case, but by ignoring the formal steps of proceedings or by following an inappropriate litigation strategy.

A better understanding of tax procedural law will enable taxpayers and professionals to better prevent, manage and resolve tax disputes.

This course provides a holistic overview of Luxembourg tax procedures, disputes and litigation for direct taxes (income, corporate and net wealth), VAT and other taxes.

What the participants will get out of it:

By the end of this training, participants will:

  • have a greater understanding of the rights and obligations of taxpayers in Luxembourg
  • become aware of the tax penalty and tax liability regimes
  • be able to identify the risk of tax evasion and fraud in their organisation and during the anti-money laundering review process for new clients
  • have a bigger picture of information and formal powers of the tax administration
  • gain a practical overview of the various remedies available for taxpayers to solve disputes
