In addition to commercial law, tax law and criminal tax law are a focal point of our firm’s activities. Sooner or later, companies and private individuals who have contact points with Italy will be confronted with tax law issues – with regard to corporate taxes and capital gains, but also with regard to income tax, inheritance tax or taxes in connection with the letting or purchase/sale of real estate, etc..

For this reason, we advise, accompany and represent companies and private individuals, particularly from German-speaking countries, in Italy in (cross-border) tax matters, comprehensively and with proven expertise in Italian and international tax law.

We provide support in connection with the application of double taxation treaties or applications for (partial) reimbursement of Italian withholding taxes. However, we also assist in the development of international tax strategies, e.g. the establishment of branches, and are a reliable contact for issues such as value-added tax and tax retention. Above all, we are available as advisors to private individuals on questions of inheritance tax in cross-border matters. Here in particular, competent advice and local representation are of immense importance: late or incomplete declarations in cross-border succession cases can lead to accusations of tax reduction or tax evasion.

All in all, we not only provide advisory and structuring services regarding Italian and international tax law. Of course, we represent private and corporate clients in German and Italian before the Italian tax authorities and in tax dispute proceedings in Italy, before tax commissions and, if required, before European courts (CJEU, ECHR).
And in the event of conflicts with Italian criminal tax law Рboth in a private and business context Рe.g. due to tax evasion, offences relating to statements or offences in the area of documentation and payment of taxes, we will of course represent you from the outset: vis-à-vis investigating and prosecuting authorities and, of course, in the event of an indictment and court proceedings in criminal tax law.
