Government Services

Fair Links supports governments, public administrations, regulation authorities and national companies in improving their controls and governance structures within an increasingly complex economic and technical environment.

Notably, our work includes economic, financial and industrial analyses underlying contractual and regulatory issues, tax policy and tax administration matters.

Our team combines the required economic and financial expertise with an astute understanding of the challenges faced by governments and public administrations; we know how to provide comprehensive, yet practical insights into the most complex situations.

Definition of Efficient Tax Policies

We assist governments and public administrations in the definition of efficient sectorial tax policies (especially for the oil, gas and mining sectors) through a meticulous understanding of industry benchmarks and comprehensive analyses of existing alternatives. Our action, in such cases, aims at optimising public tax revenue as well as maintaining the global country attractiveness vis à vis international investors.

Definition of Efficient Regulatory Mechanisms and Contractual Frameworks

We help governments, public administrations, regulation authorities and national companies to develop efficient and pragmatic sets of regulatory mechanisms and contractual frameworks.

Definition and Implementation of Public Controls

Our in-depth understanding of international fiscal and contractual frameworks enables us to help governments, public administrations and regulatory authorities in defining and implementing strengthened fiscal, regulatory and contractual control strategies.

Our team has carried out numerous governmental audits focused on fiscal, regulatory and contractual control systems and administrative procedures; our experts offer years of experience in implementing public controls with a widely revered track record of success.
