Tax advisory and bookkeeping

My Blog gives You an opportunity to become familiar with rapidly changing tax law in Poland in an international context – see entries in the category: Taxes in Poland.

Since 1998 I have been gaining experience in consulting services, dealing with finances, accounting and taxes in such international corporations as Sweco, Grontmij, JP Morgan or PWC, working not only in Polish branches, but also in Belgium and the Netherlands.

In the National Chamber of Tax Advisers we support our clients with all issues of the Polish and international tax law. Depending on the scope of an assignment we provide a team of experts with suitable experience and capabilities. In order to become a member of the National Chamber of Tax Advisers each candidate must pass a state exam and follow the code of ethics.

Each tax adviser is obliged to keep professional secret, from which only a client or a court can release us. In addition, we have an obligation to have civil liability insurance in connection with the tax advisory services provided.
