What Booij Legal & Tax doesn’t do?
Booij Legal & Tax doesn’t provide standard tax advice and it doesn’t handle tax returns. Booij Legal & Tax does not handle any criminal proceedings itself; instead, in the event of fiscal criminal proceedings or fraud cases, Booij Legal & Tax works with trusted lawyers who specialise in criminal law.
Booij Legal & Tax often works with specialist tax consultants on tax proceedings (especially VAT cases), and regularly consult with specialist lawyers for liability or recovery cases. However, it will always be Booij Legal & Tax who is in control and who decides on the strategy to be pursued.
