Paris, September 14th, 2015,
Eric LESPRIT, former Head of advance pricing agreements and mutual agreements procedures regarding double taxation elimination at the French Tax Administration, is joining Taj as partner.
Since 1998, Eric Lesprit worked for the French Tax Administration regarding companies and individuals international taxation issues. There, he took part in the creation of the Advance Pricing Agreement program in France in 1999, before heading it. Since 2013, he was also in charge of mutual agreement procedures.
As part of his missions, he was the French administration representative for competent authority procedures with foreign countries, especially those involving transfer pricing.
Moreover, he took part in the legislative drafting process regarding tax fraud fighting and tax control policy as well as the management of tax information exchanges and guiding of the French audit directions network.
At the international level, he intervened in the definition of French positions during the European Community and OECD working sessions, especially regarding the fight against tax havens and the negotiation of tax information exchange with non-cooperative territories.
From 2003 to 2006, he was technical adviser for the IMF in Washington D.C. for public revenues (taxes and customs duties).
Securing transfer pricing, upstream and downstream tax control, is a strategic issue for international companies. Thanks to Eric Lesprit as the sixth transfer pricing partner, we can offer a deeper and diverse set of solutions for our clients. On a more personal note, considering Eric Lesprit’s great human qualities, I am pleased to count him with us now. – Gianmarco Monsellato
Joining Taj is the opportunity to work with a team of great professionals among an expanded international network, especially in international taxation. At a time where international taxation rules are moving fast, I intend to take part in securing risks related to international taxation in general and transfer pricing in particular, in cooperation with fiscal administrations. – Eric Lesprit
