A tax consultant or tax attorney is someone with specialized knowledge and training of tax laws. Their services are often retained for the purpose to minimize taxes while staying within the law in difficult financial circumstances. They can help with complicated tax situations by providing sound tax advice and representing your best interests while working with the IRS. They can advise on tax planning, provide assistance with the preparation of your annual tax return, negotiate with the IRS to obtain resolution in situations where you may owe back taxes and represent you before tax authorities.
Unfortunately, many people become confused by the many tax codes and don’t know how to read them or comply with their complexities. The authorities have made it very confusing, and many people hire tax consultants and accountancy firms in Dubai to help them prepare and file their taxes for them.
The problem many people run into is that because they aren’t trained in the tax code, the tax consultants have little understanding of how to represent your best interests, and therefore your best chances of receiving a favourable outcome at the negotiating table.
If you’ve had many late-life events such as bankruptcies, home foreclosures, business bankruptcies, or other similar situations, this can throw a wrench in your tax strategy. Because life events have such a large part to play in your taxes, hiring a tax consultant makes good sense. Your tax adviser can help you understand the tax implications of late-life events and how to plan around them. This will allow you to pay less taxes overall, saving you thousands of dollars, and reducing your current debt load.
Many tax advisors and/or VAT consultants in UAE charge fees for their services, and if you’re like most, you do not want to pay for unnecessary services. Yet in reality, there are tax professionals who charge far too much and do not provide satisfactory services. There are even some tax advisors who work on contingency fees, which means that they receive a percentage of any money that is collected from clients.
One way to avoid using untrustworthy tax consultants is to work with local tax planners who are trained in the latest tax planning strategies. Certified local tax consultants and accountants can help you with virtually any tax planning issues that you may run into.
