Indirect Tax

In all industries, indirect taxes levied on goods and services play an increasingly important role. Whether your line of business is international trade, financial services, investment management, real estate or whether you operate in another sector, indirect taxation affects your business. We help you to be in control.

Being in control and managing your indirect tax position is key to the success of your business. You need to be informed on legislation and regulatory changes and in a position to handle audits and disputes, while being compliant at all times.

Our indirect tax team’s specialisations

International trade

VAT, customs, excise duties and export control will all have an effect on your international trade. Our international trade advisers not only lessen the burden of legislation and regulatory matters, but help you to explore opportunities to enhance your business. We work in close collaboration with our civil lawyers to provide you with tailor-made solutions that suit your business.

Real estate

Real estate is not just about selling, buying or exploiting property. Our specialised advisers have extensive experience in all aspects of property development, transformations, financing, investing and divesting. They manage all taxes including VAT, real estate transfer tax (RETT), landlord levy and municipality taxes. With our civil lawyers specialized in real estate and banking and finance, we ensure efficient solutions.

Dispute handling

Audits and disputes can be time and cost consuming and distract you from running your business. Our indirect tax team, in cooperation with colleagues from other departments, has the experience and knowledge to handle inquiries and disputes in the most efficient way.

Planning and strategy

Due to the constantly changing landscape and increasing importance of indirect tax, monitoring this topic is essential. Our indirect tax team can ensure that you are in control. We have tools such as scans, sample methods and benchmark inquiries for various situations to ensure this.

Compliance

The compliance team in our indirect tax group has extensive experience to ensure that you remain fully compliant.
