Cases of information/assistance provided concerning national taxation rules and bilateral agreements on double taxation and on contributions paid on the salary

Although the topic of taxation is highly complex, it is included in the portfolio of services provided by several ESCs (see Austria 10, Italy 1).

Interaction with external partners is critical for the quality of this service. Therefore, several ESCs interact frequently with relevant authorities, inviting experts and specialists to talk about the topic at different types of events (see Czech Republic 4, Estonia 5, Poland 4).

Members of the network consider it essential to hire a lawyer in order to provide certain services in this area (see Poland 13).

At the same time, the human factor is important, and personal assistance is sometimes required and recommended even in this complex area (see Spain 3).
