For us, tax consulting does not stop at national borders. Constantly advancing globalisation necessitates an extensive assessment of cross-border facts. Tax issues play an important role in almost all cross-border activities. With support from our referral association DFK International, we are in a position to obtain answers to complicated questions from competent experts on site.

Tax optimisation of your international investments requires observance of a number of complex rules in national tax systems and international double taxation agreements. In EU countries for example, the case law of the European Court of Justice must be observed. Our extensive experience and worldwide organisation of competent specialists means that we retain a clear vision despite this density of regulations. We carefully analyse the latest legal developments, provide you with structuring recommendations based on sound judgement, and by so doing help lower the tax burden of your company.

We support you in the choice of location and the structuring of holding companies, and, together with you, look for the right legal form for the foreign investment - permanent establishment, partnership or incorporated firm. We provide ideas for fiscally optimised use of low-tax countries, and suggest adequate measures for the cross-border offsetting of profits and losses. Naturally, we also assume the structuring, documentation and defence of transfer prices.

The same naturally applies to foreigners wishing to invest in Germany. The existing group structure constitutes the starting point of our considerations.
