Former PWC Transfer Pricing Senior Manager Bartlomiej Wajda has joined CMS's Tax group in Poland as Counsel, and to head the firm's Transfer Pricing practice.
Wajda, a Polish-certified tax advisor, spent 11 months advising Polish and international capital groups on transfer pricing at PWC, which he joined in October 2017 after spending the previous three years with EY in Poznan. He previously spent almost four years with KPMG. According to CMS, he "specializes in the structuring of intra-group transactions and designing transfer pricing policies, verification of business restructurings, drafting transfer pricing documentation, and valuation of different flows. Furthermore, Bartlomiej took part in negotiations of unilateral and bilateral advance pricing arrangements, MAP proceedings, and in numerous tax audits concerning transfer pricing issues."
According to CMS, “Bartlomiej is also experienced in profit allocation to permanent establishments, analyses of intangible transactions and supporting their business substance. In his professional career, he has supported clients from various sectors, including automotive, FMCG, finance, electronics and pharmaceuticals.”
"At CMS, we have been supporting clients in the field of transfer pricing for a long time, and now with the strengthening of the practice, we would like to offer our clients a dedicated team of fully specialized experts," said CMS Partner Andrzej Posniak, who manages CMS’s tax practice in Poland and across CEE. “Advising on transfer pricing is another element – after strengthening our offer in the area of tax proceedings and M&A transactions – of our strategy to develop tax services in Poland and in the region.”
CMS reports that other recent additions to the team include Radoslaw Byczyk, who has provided advisory services on transfer pricing to clients for almost eight years, Paulina Karpinska-Huzior, a tax advisor and advocate responsible for supporting clients in tax and penal tax proceedings, and Malgorzata Sajkiewicz, an advocate specializing in tax aspects of M&A transactions.
