Consultation of a lawyer on tax law

It is extremely difficult to understand the intricacies of tax law in Ukraine on your own. Legal norms are stated in a convoluted way, so you cannot do without the help of a qualified lawyer.

Our company specialists provide several types of consultations, the cost of which varies depending on the time spent on the analytical work of the lawyer, the complexity of the issue and the amount of information you need. 

So, at the introductory consultation, the specialist answers basic questions about the service, and also tells:

  • What steps are included in the procedure;

  • How much does the service you need cost;

  • How long it will take to achieve your goal.

If you are planning to proceed on your own and need step-by-step instructions, or your issue is complex and requires detailed work, order a Road Map. Our lawyer will analyze your situation and provide a step-by-step algorithm of actions.

The cost of introductory consultation and Road Map is included in the price of the service or legal support, if you order them in our company.
