“Was very good communication, good data upgrade, clear explanation, deep understanding of the issue.”

“Deep analyses of our product range, in comparison with competitive products available in our distribution areas. Fast responding and high competency.”

“Breicis are an experienced team and they not only prepare transfer pricing documentation, but also help afterward. For example, if the internal revenue service is doing an audit on transfer deals and has questions about documentation then Breicis offers help.
