Indirect Tax

In each sector of industry Indirect Tax plays an increasingly important role. Whether you are active in international trade, real estate or only on a national basis, Indirect Taxation effects your business. Being in control of and managing your Indirect Tax position is key nowadays.

Your goals and your needs: our pragmatic approach 

  • International trade
    VAT, customs & excise and export control are highly effecting your international trade. Our international trade advisors look further than only decreasing the burden of legislation and regulatory matters. Our experts have the skills and knowledge to explore opportunities for your business in this area. With our civil law colleagues we work in close collaboration 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 specialized real estate advisors have extensive experience in all aspects of property development, transformations, financing and in- and divesting. They oversee all taxes like VAT, RETT, landlord levy and municipality taxes and ensure, together with our civil law colleagues of Real Estate and Banking & Finance, an efficient way of dealing with the tax & legal issues of your transactions.
  • Dispute handling
    Audits and disputes can be time- and therefore cost-consuming and negatively distract our clients from doing their businesses. Managing audits and disputes with tax and regulatory authorities requires experts who know how to cope with these issues. The Indirect Tax team, in cooperation with colleagues from other departments, have the experience and knowledge to handle inquiries in the most efficient way.

    Due to the constantly changing landscape and increasing importance of Indirect Tax, attention and monitoring the Indirect Tax position is essential. As we are involved in these matters on a daily basis and have knowledge about the specifics of various industry sectors, our Indirect Tax team is your sparring partner to ensure the optimization of your Indirect Tax position and the attention it deserves. We have developed tools like scans, sample methods and benchmark inquiries, for various types of situations to investigate if you are in control.
