We are business oriented, so we understand market practices and the economic impacts of legislation, knowing how to translate the system's complexity into numbers and in a practical way. Thus, our tax area also works closely with all other areas of the firm, such as M&A, foreign investment, project finance, banking, capital markets, infrastructure, real estate, among others.


We invest massively in technology, developing technology and tax solutions in-house and obtaining licenses for the most advanced technological tools on the market, such as Alteryx, Python, Huve, Qlik, PowerBI, transfer pricing systems among others.


We advise the main players of the market, which include national and foreign entities that operate in all sectors of the economy, as well as individuals and funds, participating or having participated in the most complex and sophisticated operations in the country.


Our transfer pricing team is one of the fewest in Brazil effectively specialized in the new rules from OECD Guidelines, with professionals that really accumulate years of practical experience working with these rules abroad.


It is also worth mentioning our strong performance in tax litigation, which we call "Business oriented Litigation", helping our clients not only in tax disputes at the Federal, State and Municipal levels, but also in defining strategies and preparing innovative theses, both in administrative and judicial level, for the removal of taxes and recovery, in the most efficient way possible.


Stocche Forbes’ lawyers closely monitor the processing of disputes that we sponsor for our clients, which allows us to interact in a timely and proactive manner with the various courts, preventing a particular case from being judged without all the facts and arguments having been correctly submitted and explained in detail to the judges. As a result, our clientes are always up to date on the status of disputes and aware of the next steps to be taken.


Finally, we believe that direct and simple communication is synonymous with sophistication, especially in an area that deals with the most complex tax system in the world. Therefore, our work and our members cherish these guidelines, always trying to establish a straight line between two points, with a language appropriate to the business world and, whenever possible, bringing practical effects to what we are expressing.

Stocche Forbes’ tax team is made up of experienced professionals, graduated in the best universities in the country and abroad, most of them with second graduation (accounting, economics, international trade, information technology etc.). Multidisciplinary is part of our DNA and we believe that, especially in the tax area, knowing more than just Tax Law is essential for an effective, high-quality advisory that is better suited to clients.

This is exactly what we do: we provide 360o legal and tax advice, in a complete portfolio of solutions, in all tax demands that affect business and transactions in Brazil, at Federal, State and Municipal levels, in addition to international transactions.

We have developed an integrative model, so that our clients do not need to look for different service providers to fulfill the different demands, avoiding inconsistencies, errors, additional costs and delays: opinions, memoranda, tax planning, lawsuits, quantification of lawsuits, preparation and/or correction of ancillary obligations (e.g. CIAP, EFD, ECF etc.), calculation of taxes, preparation and negotiation of tax benefits, economic modeling, technical-fiscal reports, planning and implementation of new transfer pricing rules (OCDE Guidelines), assistance to ERP companies (e.g. SAP, Totvs, Oracle) etc. All of this, in a coordinated and centralized manner, carried out by our own tax team.

Although fully integrated and multidisciplinary, our tax team is divided into two major areas of expertise – Direct Taxes and Indirect/Customs Taxes: expertise brings efficiency, correctness and maturity to the work. Within these areas, teams engage in advisory, litigation, due diligence, transfer pricing and tax review cases and what we call “tax intelligence and technology”, allocating appropriate professionals to each of these cases:

Tax Consultancy

Administrative and judicial DEFENSES of infraction notices, negative orders, attribution of responsibility


PREPARATION of requests for reimbursement and offsetting of federal debts


FILING of lawsuits to guarantee the right to credits 


THESES developed by the team in general or specific by sector, such as energy, oil and gas, telecom, food, pharmaceuticals, footwear, cosmetics, beverages, agro, mining, luxury market, among others
