We advised an international pharmaceutical company on the necessary marketing authorisations and manufacturer’s authorisations for the distribution of pharmaceuticals in Europe (2013, 2014). International companies commonly have to explore the most tax-efficient options for distributing pharmaceuticals in Europe. The legal entities involved must hold the correct authorisations and permits. Tax advisers do not always take account of this. We proactively ensure that their distribution methods are fully compliant, bearing in mind the financial parameters.
