Tax, Customs & International Trade

Posse Herrera Ruiz provides comprehensive tax, customs and cross-border trade services associated with ongoing business operations and tax planning for investment projects.

Our services include support for tax and customs filings and compliance, as well as the review of financial investment models for the purpose of optimizing tax liabilities.

We represent national and foreign companies before Colombian authorities, with respect to filings, authorizations, appeals, tax benefit recognition, and tax litigation.

Tax planning is an integral part of our comprehensive legal support for restructurings, sales and acquisitions of Colombian entities. We are active in analyzing international treaties regarding double taxation and free trade, the development and approval of free-trade zones, the negotiation of stability agreements with the Colombian government, and the structuring of investment and private equity funds.
