WHO WE ARE

MVP TAX is the outcome of years of experience working with clients in various industries and determining a formula that will meet the needs of our customers. We know that these needs are different for each client. Therefore, we have created a platform for cooperation where we are able to provide our tax advisory services concerning all taxes.

The three words that define us and our services are:

Trust ­– if you decide to work with us you can entrust us with all your affairs and, to the extent permitted by law, we will protect that confidentiality. Trust is also loyalty and mutual respect, which you can expect from us. Additionally, we will deal with all your matters guided by these principles.

Commitment – Each of us is personally involved in the work for you. This means that you always have contact with a person that you trust and who directly deals with your affairs. If need be, we can call on the assistance of appropriate specialists. We are always available and we ensure that each of your cases is our priority.

Creativity – we are always looking for solutions that will help you improve your business or optimize your tax settlements. Creativity is also looking for original ways to resolve disputes with the tax authorities with a positive outcome. This feature definitely distinguishes us from many other advisors.

We specialize in providing day-to-day tax advice, we advise our clients on the tax aspects of transactions relevant to their business, and we support them in on-going tax audits, tax proceedings and proceedings before administrative courts.

Wojciech Pietrasiewicz

Tax Advisor, License No. 10369, lawyer

I have been assisting clients with their tax matters for almost 15 years. In 2005 I was admitted as a tax advisor. For several years I worked with renowned law firms (Baker & McKenzie, Allen & Overy), where I was responsible for advising on the tax aspects of M&A transactions, capital markets and real estate transactions.

My practice includes day-to-day advice to clients primarily in the real estate, financial, entertainment, and the information-technology sectors as well as for cultural institutions and NGOs.

I am also heavily involved in advising on tax aspects related to different transactions and representing clients in disputes with tax authorities. For many years I represented clients from various industries in tax audits, tax proceedings and proceedings before administrative courts.

In the international ranking of Tax Controversy Leaders in 2015, I was recognized as one of the leading tax advisors in disputes with tax authorities. I was also ranked in Chambers Europe 2016 as a leading lawyer in Tax. I am a member of the International Fiscal Association (IFA).

I am an avid runner and a fan of team sports. In my spare time I read Polish medieval literature and books on economic psychology.
