Cross-Border Tax Expertise

Companies with international business face cross-border aspects and compliance issues when structuring their business and with cross-border transactions. Tax laws and regulations may differ from country to country. International tax regulations are currently the subject of rapid development (including Base Erosion and Profit Shifting (BEPS) measures and EU anti-Tax Avoidance Directive (ATAD)). Supervision by tax authorities is becoming increasingly stringent. We are your partner for international tax law issues. Our in-house researchers can handle any question in this complex area of law. You can order an extensive report from us with references to relevant legislation and jurisprudence. As alumni of the International Bureau of Fiscal Documentation, we advise and focus, inter alia, on the following questions:

  • What are the tax obligations abroad if I open offices there?
  • What legal form is suitable for my company abroad?
  • Do I set up a foreign branch of my company, or do I prefer to incorporate a foreign subsidiary?
  • Are there any tax pitfalls when working with distributors or agents?
  • In which countries must my company pay corporate income tax and dividend tax?
  • How do I avoid double taxation?
  • List arguments for tax court proceedings
  • What is the significance of European Directives and international tax treaties for my situation?
  • How should I restructure in the context of the application of the company succession scheme under the Succession Act?
  • What obligations apply if I am subject to taxation abroad as well as in my residence country?
  • What international structure is appropriate for the management of my intellectual property rights?
  • How can I optimise the funding structure of my international company in the context of taxes?
