Companies deal with VAT on a daily basis in their day-to-day business. VAT law has complex ramifications between VAT and input tax deduction. A very lively body of case law in Germany and - in the case of cross-border activities - at EU level must be taken into account.
In addition, extraordinary transactions such as corporate or real estate transactions present special challenges because they do not occur on a daily basis but involve large volumes.
Sales tax is now being audited with increasing frequency. In order to prepare for this increased attention as well as in dealing with it, we are at your side. We make sure that you have everything under control and therefore a good feeling when it comes to sales tax.
