Test Cases

Focus on: Open tax issues

Target group:
Restaurateurs, freelancers and private limited companies (GmbH) in the fields of IT, commerce, trade and industry, partners - managing directors, jointly liable members and tax consultants.
These professions are often the focus of tax authorities on the basis of estimations and high tax payments. IT - contractors with threatening tax payments and deportations and enforcement of foreign assets are the focus of the tax investigation.
Presenting individual and group cases before the tax courts.
Efficient and cost-saving legal clarity in the case of outstanding tax issues.

Focus on: Liability for IT contractors

Target group:
Contracting partners of banks and IT - companies
Contractual cooperation is often not recognized by the tax office. Allegation: Agencies were established in tax havens. Payments to these agencies are classified as revenue in trust accounts and will be taxed retroactively.
Is the economic ownership of this agency attributed to the client? Do the agencies and their consultants have to be taken into joint liability? Are the clients entitled to claims for damages against the tax office on the basis of one-sided investigations, inactivity or failure to respect the European tax legislation?
In these cases, our law has to strictly conduct success-oriented individual and legal proceedings in group. These cases are reviewed by all the German and European authorities.

On focus: Damage Claims Tax Office

Target group:
Restaurateurs, freelancers and private limited companies (GmbH) in the fields of IT, commerce, trade and industry, partners - managing directors, jointly liable members and tax consultants.
