Joaquim Pedro Lampreia (Partner) is quoted in an article in the newspaper Jornal de Negócios, entitled "Tax Authorities win case against petrol company", on the decision of the court to consider that the collection of the CSR was not an error attributable to the tax authorities, but only to them applying the law.

Asked what implications there will be if this decision becomes final, the lawyer says: "In practice, taxpayers would have increased difficulties in claiming the tax paid in previous years, and it is certain that the AT will appeal against decisions to the contrary, that is, it will be case law to take into account, but not binding, so the CSR should continue to be a topic in court for a long time to come."
