International tax law
We specialise in supporting domestic companies’ expansion abroad.
This not only means that we determine which tax structure is ideal for an individual case. It also means that we provide consulting regarding the protection of German company assets as well as German owners from the risks of foreign legal systems.
We also support foreign companies investing in Germany. For foreign clients, we carry out the establishment of German companies including any associated registration duties as well as the proper handling of tax obligations.
Through our international HLB network we are capable of clarifying qualification conflicts between the individual legal systems quickly and reliably with the help of colleagues abroad. Beyond that, domestic companies have access to our International Legal & Tax Desk for their cross-border activities from Germany to other countries and vice versa. We remove language barriers – clients communicate with our experts in German, English, Spanish or Russian.
We are the vanguard in implementing the latest legal developments. Our partner Prof. Dr. Christian Jahndorf and our attorney of counsel Prof. Dr. Till Zech are initiators and founders of IFA Westfalen. The IFA (International Fiscal Association) is the world’s largest international association of tax attorneys and tax consultants.
Furthermore, our partner Prof. Dr. Christian Jahndorf and our attorney of counsel Prof. Dr. Till Zech have established the transfer pricing working group. It discusses the latest developments in the area of global internal group transactions. Its participants include representatives of renowned companies (DAX companies included) who provide reports regarding their experience with auditing, particularly concerning transfer pricing. Through this working group, we succeed in concentrating experience and utilising it for our clients’ benefit.
