Tax

All business activities have tax implications, and the volume of taxes paid has a decisive impact on corporate earnings. We specialise in tax planning for companies, business owners, investors and employees. We support firms in developing tax-efficient structures for their local and international activities. We also help our clients create tax-optimised remuneration plans and structures for financing, intellectual property and production. In addition, our tax team represents clients in various legal matters before tax authorities, fiscal courts and other administrative and customs authorities.
