BAHR – tax problems tamed

Tax disputes can be difficult, lengthy and frustrating – not to mention expensive. Getting the right tax advice can make or break a deal. That’s particularly true in Norway, with our increasingly complex tax code and special regimes for key business sectors.

Fortunately, our tax experts are here to help.

From the largest transfer pricing cases, to the tax aspects of cross-border mergers or fund structuring, property taxes, VAT, and advice on Norway’s special tax regimes, including petroleum tax, we have the experience you need. Consistently top-ranked by independent rating agencies, we regularly act in the most significant tax disputes and handle the largest tax transactions, such as:

  • Assisting Aker BP with all aspects of its acquisition of Lundin’s oil and gas business in Norway, including tax issues related to both the transaction and a post-closing restructuring.
  • Representing A/S Norske Shell in the Supreme Court in a case relating to the tax treatment of R&D costs incurred as operator on the Norwegian Continental Shelf and involving key transfer pricing elements, including the relevance of the OECD Guidelines in Norwegian law.
  • Representing A/S Norske Shell in a dispute regarding the deduction of input VAT on rent and the operation of movable housing units for construction workers.

Above all, we understand you need practical advice and workable solutions. Many of our lawyers have years of experience at the tax authorities and the Ministry of Finance, gaining a profound understanding of Norway’s tax codes. At BAHR we combine deep expertise with our trademark business-focus to benefit our clients.
