Tax planning of company groups

The group-level operation of companies opens a new dimension of opportunities in tax planning and managing tax questions, while it presumes a tax-conscious company behaviour. The decisions related to a certain group of companies might include the creation of holding and financing structures, the planning of group-level tax burdens, the optimal allocation of investments, assets, intellectual properties, employees and cash flow. In addition, as special tax regulations might apply to certain company groups, the monitoring of these is the responsibility of the whole group and the individual member companies. Such special example is the complex regulation of group taxation for VAT purposes, which gives numerous tax planning opportunities. Another example, which has recently been one of the main focuses of tax authority inspections, is the establishing and the documentation of transfer prices between related companies. Our experienced professionals are keen to assist you in all these questions.
