Almost all entrepreneurial activities entail tax effects. This is why we have integrated comprehensive expertise in tax law into our legal advice. The execution of proceedings before the tax court is also an integral part of our work.
Within the scope of our tax law advice, we will support you in deciding on and implementing strategies within the framework of the choice of legal form, in restructuring measures and in structuring the tax-optimised corporate and private succession planning.
Criminal tax law
Any negligent or deliberate failure to disclose tax-relevant circumstances could possibly result in criminal proceedings for tax offences.
In many cases, criminal tax proceedings are brought in connection with foreign capital assets - whether by the investor himself or his heirs, as the case may be. In this context, a strategy should be developed that leads as far as possible to impunity.
For about a decade, the lawyers and tax consultants at Wiese & Schlichting have been working intensively in this area. In addition to initiating penalty-avoiding self-disclosures, the necessary negotiations with the tax criminal authorities or public prosecutors' offices, the preparation of the underlying tax material is also part of our core tasks, which are necessary to mutually and successfully overcome prosecution procedures.
