20 Apr 2020
A time of crisis is a time for quick decisions. Our experts are fully aware of the most urgent needs of Lithuanian businesses at the time of the coronavirus outbreak. Here is how we can help.
Taxes / Social Security Contributions
>> Tax & Social Security payments deferral
Apply to tax authorities for tax deferral and repayment schedule, even if your business is not in the COVID-19 directly affected taxpayers.
>> Tax burden relief, tax incentives
Bolster liquidity with our assistance in the tax burden relief and tax incentives related assistance. This offering is also possible on a “success fee” basis, meaning that it will cost to you only if it will be successful and real tax savings will result. This offering is safe, as we systematically ask for tax authorities’ confirmation in writing and prepare a “defense file”.
>> Transfer pricing advisory and compliance
Disregarding COVID-19, on 15 June 2020 all companies with >3m EUR revenue and >90k EUR transactions with associated parties must have transfer pricing documentation for such transactions. Failure to do so can result in penalties to CEO of more than 1800 EUR and taxpayer being declared “unreliable”.
