Tax structuring

Tax plays an important role in every company and organisation. When structuring your business or expanding it by acquisition, merger or cross-border operations, tax-efficiency should be a priority, both on the level of direct tax as indirect tax (VAT, customs duties, transaction taxes).

At any stage of your activities, we can assist you by discussing, developing and implementing the most appropriate tax structure.

 

International tax advice

International tax is faced with a lot of challenges and uncertainties. New international rules like BEPS, decisions by the European Commission or the Court of  Justice of the European Union can have an impact on the business. International expertise for the best use of the tax rules in various jurisdictions and the follow up of the evolution in international tax is more than ever essential when running a business over the borders. 

Thanks to our international network, we can assist you when you are doing or planning to do business abroad. We assist you with international tax compliance and reporting, structuring advice and international mobility.

 

Family wealth planning

Private company owners and wealthy individuals want to preserve their legacy and transmit it to their heirs in the most tax-effective way. Private company owners are not only driven by tax aspects, but are keen to transfer the family business to the following generation in the most appropriate way.

We can assist you with your inheritance planning, pension planning and find appropriate solutions for problems of any kind within your family business.

 

VAT

VAT can be a threat if not all legal and administrative obligations are satisfied properly, as well locally as internationally. By an optimisation of the VAT deduction methodologies, companies and associations can reduce their VAT burden. 

We can assist you with the fulfilment of your VAT obligations, assist you during a VAT audit, perform a proactive VAT review and give you advice regarding ways to optimise VAT.

 

Corporate tax

Corporate tax rules are changing every year and become more and more complicated.

We assist you with corporate tax planning, tax structuring, restructuring (mergers, demergers). We give support for the filing of your corporate tax return, the other tax obligations and with tax audits. We assist you with requests for preliminary rulings and give you global advice in corporate tax matters.

 

Private Clients

Tax legislation is permanently changing and has become very complex. The tax administration constantly adapt its interpretations, as well regarding individual tax, as regarding inheritance tax and registration duties.

We can assist you with your family asset planning, the acquisition of real estate, the filing of your individual tax return, and other private matters.

 

Company Law

Running a business through a corporate structure is being faced with specific obligations and rules, as from the start up until the winding up and especially in the corporate lifetime.
