MFBR lawyers and associates care!

In light of the constantly changing social and economic landscape in the world due to COVID-19, everyone at Mallari Fiel Brillante Ronquillo has taken steps to make good our steadfast commitment to serve our clients and our communities.

To this end, we designed a new business model incorporating the traditional “brick and mortar” and “virtual” law offices. This new model is to achieve the continuity of rendering our legal and business consultancy services to clients and friends, and the immediate implementation of our crisis management and business transformation activities.

Thus, we’re glad to announce that for every fortnight, half of our team will be physically present at our offices from Monday thru Friday, 8:00am to 3:00pm. Clients and our friends can reach us through our office phones and online platforms (website, emails, Facebook, LinkedIn, Zoom, etc.). And to ensure the health and safety of our staff, they have the option to be housed in the Firm’s private residence or shuttled back and forth using the company’s private vehicle. Safety protocols are also observed at our offices.

Finally, our team has prepared a series of materials around the impact of COVID-19 and related considerations. Please take time to view our sample articles and research published in our website. A complete listing and discussion of these articles are available in our newsletter to be distributed to our esteemed clients.

Should you have questions, please reach out to our Office Manager, Argie Macawile, at +632 86953395, +63977 8502357; or email our Managing Partner, Atty. Rob Mallari, at mfl@mflegal.com.ph and rpmallari@mflegal.com.ph.

Tax Services

The Firm advises clients on both litigious and non-litigious tax issues. On litigious issues, we represent several multinational companies, mostly before the Bureau of Internal Revenue and the Court of Tax Appeals on tax refund issues and deficiency assessments. We have handled tax assessment cases for multinational corporations engaged in mining, manufacturing and, most recently, for a company engaged in the trading of heavy equipment, involving a US $44 million tax assessment before the Bureau of Internal Revenue. The assessment involved the imposition of deficiency income tax, VAT, withholding tax, excise tax and documentary stamp tax.

We represent our clients in every stage of tax controversies, including tax audits and litigation. We have also represented companies before the Court of Tax Appeals on several tax issues.

On non-litigious issues, we assist clients in reducing tax payable by the application of allowable tax rules and rulings, advising clients on transfer pricing issues. Wherever possible we obtain tax incentives and tax holidays for our clients.

Our TaxDep can provide advice and guidance to clients on the nuances of the Voluntary Assessment Program (VAP) and No Audit Program (NAP), a tax awareness program of the Philippine Government.

Other Tax Services include:

    • Tax structuring and advice for local and cross-border mergers and acquisitions, including advice on the tax implications related to pre- and post-acquisition restructuring, project finance and foreign investments
    • Tax structuring and advice for debt and equity offerings; real estate transactions; and corporate reorganizations
    • Advice on tax treaty relief provisions
    • Estate planning
    • General tax planning to maximize the efficiency of clients’ tax position.
