Tax inspection of a major hotel group
In this case, the service consisted of more than two years of verification dealing with three inspectors, with visits to the company's offices.
Tax inspection of an SME
In this case, the service consisted of an inspection of a company whose partners had an intermediary company to collect their remuneration. The success consisted in the fact that tax simulation, which could give rise to an offence against the public finances, was not applied and regularisation was carried out for related operations.
Appeal in cassation
In this case, the Client was able to recover more than two million in settlements, with the Supreme Court annulling the settlements for reasons of form and substance, and the penalties were also eliminated, as liability had not been sufficiently accredited.
In this case, Samuel has accumulated numerous successes in the area of checks and inspections of expenses of self-employed workers, preventing the administration from settling for these concepts.
Offences against public finances
In this case, the Client managed to avoid a conviction for a crime against the Public Treasury, as the minimum requirements of the Criminal Code and Jurisprudence were not met.
