  • Providing trainings and workshops in the scope of recent issues in Bulgarian tax laws and VAT law.


Our Appeal Process:


  1. Review the proposed assessments (or enrolled assessments) issued by the NRA audit authorities in each local jurisdiction. During this process, we will review the subject and the legal practice to identify and develop opportunities for reduced tax assessments. This phase will consist of a review of the assessing jurisdiction’s records and may include visiting your accountancy. We will consider the three approaches to tax determination along with legal practice analysis to develop any potential appeal positions. We will combine these approaches in the most advantageous manner.

  2. Determine which assessment(s) should be protested or appealed based on the information compiled.

  3. As appropriate, prepare and timely file appeals or other documents necessary to protest, either informally or formally before NRA.


  4. As needed, be a representative in valuation negotiations and administrative appeals, from the informal level with local assessment authority through the formal level, according to Tax and Social Securities Procedural Code.
