Scope of Tax Law Advice for our Clients

German and International Tax Law

For us, giving advice on tax law includes advising the client on all tax-related questions, such as the submission of tax returns, including the assertion of appropriate interpretations of the law, the clarification of individual factual questions, the tax-optimised structuring of business dealings, transactions or restructuring and the advice on tax ramifications entailed by projects, both inside and outside of Germany. We also negotiate effectively with the Tax Authority on behalf of our clients. If a settlement cannot be achieved this way, lodging objections and commencing litigation are part of our daily work, which aims to achieve the best possible result for our clients. Tax advice is a matter of trust. This applies to individual questions or projects as it does to ongoing tax advice. Our clients can expect due attention to detail and the protection of confidence for the best possible solution to their personal situation. We pay particular attention to the overall context, e.g. the interaction of a certain issue with other operational or personal/family circumstances. This enables us to approach all tax-related matters with a suitable concept. If required, we draw on our internal pool of specialist attorneys in civil and corporate law for the effective clarification and discussion of additional questions.

Tax Law Specialists: Solid knowledge and practical experience as tax advisers

Hardly any area of law changes as rapidly and inscrutable for laymen as tax law does. Whether they are medium-sized companies, stock-exchange listed corporations, self-employed, members of the liberal professions, entrepreneurs, tradesmen or employees: All clients desire to include tax considerations to secure their economic success. This can only be achieved by the individual and competent advice of a tax law specialist. Our law firm has extensive knowledge and the necessary practical experience as tax attorneys and tax advisers to assist each individual case in the best possible way. This profound knowledge is brought together in our law firm by the continuous professional education of our partners and team members. We track the current jurisprudence and the relevant professional periodicals. We have access to the leading databases containing judgements, professional periodicals and specialist literature.

Continuous involvement in new tax-related legal issues.

Continuous education and research enables us to keep up with the Chameleon-like nature of the ever-changing tax laws. Our clients also benefit from our continuous involvement in taxation matters: we present as speakers at seminars (for an audience of tax advisers) and publish articles in the leading periodicals of the tax profession (i.e. on procedural tax law).

We know how the Tax Authority works

Many members of our team are former employees of the Tax Authority and combine this insider knowledge with their competencies as tax law specialists and tax advisers . At LHP Attorneys at Law, we know the essential workings of the Tax Authority and we know how to efficiently reach our goals.
