Introducing Arena Tax – Your Full-Service Tax and Transfer Pricing Specialists
Arena Tax is composed of two teams: General Tax team and Transfer Pricing and Valuations team.
The Tax team - experienced tax advisors, legal advisors, lawyers and specialists – is headed by Tax Managing Partner, Aneta Saramak, a state-licensed tax advisor with over 20 years of experience in Polish and international advising. The team perform their work with the highest diligence and quality in the field of tax (including VAT, corporate taxes, international taxation for groups of companies, tax accounting, compliance and representation in court disputes). It provides its services to a range of sectors, including financial, real estate and development, manufacturing, technology and IT. They are among the Top 25 Firms in Poland.
Transfer pricing is the second main specialism alongside taxes for which they are seen to be in the Top 10. With a full-time team of 10 dedicated to transfer pricing, they stand out as experts in this field and can support other member firms and their clients through a very specialised, full scope service which is globally provided only by the largest audit networks: global transfer pricing compliance and reporting (OECD/UN standard), benchmarking studies (including financial benchmarks), transfer pricing planning, advisory and litigation.
Joanna Żmuda-Trzebiatowska, state-licensed tax advisor with over 15 years of experience in transfer pricing, and Tax Managing Partner at Arena Tax, is a true advocate of the specialism and we are delighted to have her leading a new Global Transfer Pricing Group for the MGI Worldwide CPAAI community.
Strong teamwork ethos
The strength of Arena Tax is its deep, shared knowledge base and a unique collaborative approach – they share all knowledge about each client with other tax advisors in the team, bringing in multiple specialists to work with a single client. This agile approach is unusual in Polish firms and fosters efficiency and swift service across all fields.
Arena Tax has extensive experience in cooperation with foreign advisors and in providing services for international capital groups in the field of tax, accounting and global transfer pricing across Europe, Asia and North America. They are a trusted partner for international business and welcome members from any of our regions to get in touch.
