International tax law
International companies have to deal with a large number of complex tax issues, such as foreign taxation, final taxation in Austria (so-called disjunction), avoidance of double taxation or adherence to reporting and compliance regulations. Our experts offer support and assistance in all areas of international tax law and European tax law so that you can avoid any pitfalls abroad.
Not only large corporations operate internationally; small and medium-sized companies are also setting up production or sales units abroad in order to be able to compete on the international stage. At the same time, many employees are taking advantage of the opportunity to work abroad for a certain period – at a foreign subsidiary, for example.
The international tax landscape is becoming increasingly stringent due to national or supranational (OECD, EU) measures. This bears tax risks in connection with essential business investments abroad. At the same time, however, there is tax competition between countries, for example through reductions in international corporate tax rates, particularly in Eastern Europe.
We offer comprehensive practical and professional expertise in all areas of international and European tax law. Our team of experienced, international tax consultants helps companies achieve their corporate goals with the maximum of legal certainty and tax efficiency.
