The Center for Global Best Practices, in collaboration with Sycip Salazar Hernandez and Gatmaitan Law Offices, is holding a pioneering seminar entitled “Best Practices in Handling Customs Tax Audits and Remedies” on Thursday, June 5, 2014 at the EDSA Shangri-La Hotel in Mandaluyong City.
This event will feature lawyer Domingo G. Castillo, expert practitioner and partner in the largest law firm in the country, Sycip Salazar Hernandez & Gatmaitan Law offices.
This special program is designed to help importers learn how to deal fairly and squarely with the Bureau of Customs (BOC).
It will empower participants and companies by informing them of importers’ rights, help them understand the BOC’s basis of assessment/audit to save on unnecessary taxes, explain what to do in case of warrants and seizures, and teach importers how to craft letters to challenge the valuations/under-declaration charges imposed by the BOC. This will also include updates on customs regulations that affect business transactions.
This solutions-oriented program will tackle comprehensively the administrative, judicial, procedural, and substantive remedies to problems encountered by importers on issues of customs taxes and duties with the BOC.
Expert practitioners in the field will share their best practices, important lessons, real stories, updates and cases decided by the Court of Tax Appeals and Supreme Court.
The seminar is accredited by the Supreme Court. Lawyers will earn Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) credits. Early bird discounts are available for those who register early, the organizers said. Group discounts for three or more attendees are also available, they added.
