While there is nothing quite as complicated as tax law, opting for our comprehensive consulting is the easiest decision you will ever make.


Thanks to our in-depth knowledge and practical experience, we are ideally positioned to advise you in all areas relating to German and international taxation. With regular publications, we contribute to the ongoing development of tax legislation and liaise closely with both regional and national tax authorities. We have secured a number of key decisions by the Federal Fiscal Court (Bundesfinanzhof) in recent decades.

Tax structuring

Our consulting work in this area begins with tax structuring and choosing a legal form. We provide you with ongoing advice and help you structure your tax returns. This covers the entire spectrum of tax declaration advice up to and including income tax. We will be there every step of the way to advise you on all tax, legal and corporate finance questions: from setting up and expanding companies to preparing business succession plans.

International taxation

We optimize tax structures for your cross-border business activities. We will help you choose a location and legal form for subsidiaries and permanent establishments. We are well versed in international tax regulations and have extensive experience helping our clients deploy their employees to work in other countries. We also specialize in inbound investments, avoiding double taxation and cross-border inheritance tax and gift tax.

Transfer prices

We structure transfer price systems that reflect your individual business model and defend these during audits by the tax authorities. If the national laws of other countries are involved, we can draw on our international network of independent auditing and consulting firms: the Crowe Global network.

Value-added tax

We advise you on German and international VAT questions relating to the transactions in your company and on structuring your supply and service chains. In doing so, we keep track of all dynamic changes and court decisions that are relevant for your company. We identify risks and pre-tax potential in VAT checks, provide hands-on assistance with declaration requirements in Germany and abroad, and conduct individual training courses for you.

Customs law, trade policy and export control

We advise companies on all questions relating to international trade. Through audit and quick check, we analyze your supply chains, identifying risks and pinpointing potential for optimization. Our aim is to create smooth processes – but if a dispute should arise, we will be at your side to help you settle it.

Taking into account global and trade policy aspects, we analyze where tax costs can be minimized. We also help you to apply for funding and benefits.

We will represent your interests during examinations by customs and supervisory authorities, helping to resolve conflicts if necessary. Our team has decades of experience in advising companies and in legal representation before the fiscal courts, the Federal Fiscal Court (Bundesfinanzhof) and the European Court of Justice.

Excise duty

Trading with goods that are subject to excise duty is complex, with different laws in each EU member state entailing extensive formalities. Together, we can overcome these challenges. We will help you to set up new supply chains and to optimize existing ones to avoid unwanted tax exposure. We will inform you about statutory funding opportunities and help you with applications and monitoring approvals. Ideally, we would be by your side as a precautionary measure and, in the event of disputes, can accompany you through the entire process.
