My name is Teresa Sermak and I work as an associate lawyer in Tax and Legal Services at PwC Oslo.

My area of expertise covers mainly international VAT issues. This relates to cross-border transactions as well as assessment of VAT obligations both in Norway and outside of Norway.

I started in PwC Poland in 2016 and joined PwC Norway in 2017. Prior to that, I gained relevant experience through internships both in the Trade and Investment Promotion Department of the Polish Embassy in Paris as well as the Polish Ministry of Finance.
