We provide comprehensive tax and regulatory advice on the structuring, implementation, ongoing support and liquidation of investment structures, and especially open-ended funds. In this area, we are noticing a growing increase in complexity, especially due to separated regulatory and tax requirements for fund structures.
At the same time, the tax authorities are intensifying the examination and sanctioning of infringements of general tax principles (e.g. transfer pricing, Foreign Taxation Act (AStG), VAT-Act (UstG)) also in relation to investment structures. As a result, initiators as well as investors are increasingly facing challenges related to the compliance with and implementation of the regulatory and tax law framework.
The aim of our advisory approach, which is geared towards the real estate fund industry, is to offer initiators and investors comprehensive advice in every phase of the life cycle of an investment structure.
