Vox Tax: Global Protections for Tax Advice

Shortly before the end of 2014, Dentons published a new edition of Vox Tax. This edition of Vox Tax analyzes global protections available for tax advice and provides a high-level overview of legal privileges and protections that may preclude the production of sensitive tax advice in administrative tax examinations and judicial proceedings.

In the report, lawyers from Dentons’ Global Tax Team examine privileges and protections in 17 countries across North America, Europe, and Asia. The report addresses the applicable protections, the type of information subject to protection, and what may effectuate a waiver of those protections.

Additionally, the report analyzes the practices and trends of each local taxing authority with respect to information gathering and sharing. This report also includes a summary table comparing these 17 countries on several key intricacies of their respective tax laws.
