Over the past two years, our members have been especially active in the application and implementation of the regulations contained in the 2014 Tax Reform and its multiple circulars, adapting the business structures of our clients to the new regulatory requirements, advising them in compliance with the new tax information obligations, and helping them in the evaluation and implementation of the franchises that the transitional provisions of the Reform grant to taxpayers.

While we maintain a strict policy of confidentiality regarding the clients to whom we provide our services, we are in a position to inform that, among them, all types of organizations and entities are included, including embassies, corporations, foundations, public bodies, high net worth individuals and public and private companies, including productive enterprises and service companies, agricultural companies, real estate, laboratories, metal mechanics, salmon farms, etc.

Our team is integrated by lawyers and accountants having graduated from the best universities in the country, with postgraduate studies in Chilean and foreign universities. We are also known for having a strong professional and academic presence, actively participating in the International Tax Association, the Chilean Institute of Tax Law, the Tax Commission of the Bar Association, and developing teaching activities in pre and post-graduate programs.
