Your contact persons
We have lawyers that are accredited tax law specialists, tax advisors and certified public accountants. Having such a diverse range of tax specialists enables us to cover any tax issue that arises.
Our tax advisors and certified public accountants provide a complete service for individuals and businesses. They prepare tax returns (including for deceased estates) and annual financial statements and they also manage finance and payroll. They have experience in managing bookkeeping using our in-house Datev-supported computer system, which can be done completely electronically if requested.
Our lawyers are experienced in providing advice regarding tax efficient structures and transactions for our clients. This includes cross-border matters where assets are located in Germany, Australia and the USA. We provide strategic tax planning in respect of all the advice we provide, including:
- Drafting Wills for business and private persons
- Inheritance contracts for business and private persons
- Spousal contracts
- Restructuring of business groups
- Establishment of businesses
- Purchase and sale of businesses (M&A),
- Gifts of private and business assets.
Our lawyers also represent our clients in dealings with the German tax office. This includes preparing voluntary disclosures for our clients resulting in waiver of penalties, including cross-border matters where clients have left out earnings from other countries from their German tax return. We also object to tax assessments and assist clients with on-site visits from the tax office.
We represent our clients in penalty investigation proceedings, often negotiating with the tax office and the public prosecutors to avoid the matter going to the Criminal Court. We also represent our clients in legal proceedings at Court, including in respect of German and European detention orders.
