Pestalozzi wins tax litigation for commodities industry
Pestalozzi argued that it was justified in the extraordinary circumstances of this case for the companies to trust the tax assessments were correct. The companies therefore could not reasonably be expected to challenge the tax assessments when issued. In these circumstances, it would have been disproportionate for the tax assessments to be upheld. All taxes paid were finally refunded. The team included partner Nils Harbeke (tax – pictured), associate Pascale Schwizer (tax) and associate Dario Marzorati (litigation & arbitration).
