With the globalisation of markets, domestic companies investing abroad are becoming increasingly important, as are foreign companies investing in a country. Tax advice across borders deals with tax planning at home and abroad. It also aims to optimise tax at group level by using a business and tax-oriented group structure. The involvement of holdings, management, finance and special service companies is particularly relevant in this area.
Nowadays, there are many more high net worth individuals than in the past. However, they often neglect investing their assets strategically, or preserving and increasing their family's assets for generations to come.
As business becomes increasingly international and cross-border trade in goods and services intensifies, advising on complex sales tax and customs issues is growing in importance. The constant growth in statutory regulation means people need to be more aware of the tax implications involved.
The comprehensive network of markets means that cross-border knowledge transfer is becoming progressively more important. As a result, staff working for global groups must be increasingly mobile and are being seconded across borders. In addition to being embedded in national tax and social security structures, staff and employers also face tax and social security law in their destination countries.
Taxes are among the main cost drivers for business, another reason why tax compliance is a key part in many business agendas. It is becoming more common for companies to hire tax risk managers and produce tax risk policies, not just to meet increasingly complex tax and legal tax compliance demands, but also for more efficient and progressive tax planning.
Tax disputes and investigations are very much on the rise, with proceedings now being conducted more efficiently and stringently. This means that tax disputes are raising issues that must be responded to with comprehensive experience and professional competence.
