We are pleased to announce that Magdalena Marciniak, tax advisor, partner and Head of the Transfer Pricing Practice at MDDP has yet again been named one of the best transfer pricing advisors in the Tax Advisory Firms and Advisors of the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. This is the fourth consecutive year in which Magdalena Marciniak is ranked by the DGP among the best experts in this field in Poland (2018, 2019, 2020).
At MDDP Magdalena Marciniak manages a team of almost 50 persons – one of the largest and most frequently awarded transfer pricing practices on the Polish market. She leads projects concerning documentation of transaction flows in capital groups and valuation of related-party transactions involving goods and services. She manages projects concerning restructuring of operations in capital groups as regards supply chain functionality and optimisation, development and implementation of transfer pricing policies in capital groups or support in transfer pricing tax audits. What distinguishes her on the Polish market is the unique experience in preparing applications for Advance Pricing Agreements. She has extensive experience in advising clients from the real estate, automotive, financial and pharmaceutical sectors, and it includes preparing transfer pricing documentation, reviewing transfer pricing documentation, conducting benchmark analyses or developing and implementing transfer pricing policies in capital groups. She facilitates workshops on preparing transfer pricing documentation and applying tax methods in related-party transactions. She is the only Central European expert nominated in the Transfer Pricing Practice Leader of the Year category in the prestigious European Tax Awards 2020 competition held by the International Tax Review.

A breakthrough judgment of the Supreme Administrative Court concerning VAT carousels (case file no.
