Marc Dhaene is a member of Loyens & Loeff’s general tax practice group in Belgium.
His practice covers a broad range of international and domestic corporate tax issues such as inward investments, holding and financing structures, corporate restructuring (including cross-border reorganisations), transfer pricing, tax treaty issues, withholding tax requirements, corporate and structured finance projects, and mergers and acquisitions.
Mr Dhaene is also a member of the Belgian tax controversy and litigation team. He provides assistance at every stage of the resolution process from audit examination to tax appeals and, if necessary, tax litigation. Mr Dhaene acts frequently on behalf of the taxpayer in negotiations with the Belgian revenue services, and especially with the special Tax Investigation Brigade. He also has considerable experience in handling alternative dispute resolution processes (i.e., ruling requests and advance pricing agreements).
Mr Dhaene has written extensively on tax-related subjects, and has given several lectures and seminars on various aspects of corporate tax law such as the Belgian holding regime, transfer pricing, anti-abuse provisions, undervaluation of assets, tax treatment of partnership structures and tax treatment of mergers.
