Independent member in GGI Geneva Group International AG Zurich – internationally positioned
Benefitax GmbH is excellently positioned for all issues related to cross-border tax affairs. We have several experts in international taxation. One of our experts is a specialist advisor in international taxation and a former presiding fiscal court judge, who is a well-known author and speaker in the matters of international taxation and corporate law in addition to being an honorary professor. Thus, we are not afraid of even the most difficult tasks. We create e.g. tax planning for internationally operating organizations and prepare transfer pricing documentation. We preemptively advise in tax field audits or help in negotiations with tax auditors, mainly when a specialized auditor for cross-border transactions is called in. We clarify whether specific income in a country must be declared or must be taxed there and identify any possible tax-efficient alternatives for you.
Furthermore, we have excellent contacts with tax experts outside Germany and can also help you internationally. You want to invest with a German company abroad and require a suitable local consultant or maybe you want to invest in Germany as a foreign company. Similarly, you can also get advice on the (tax) law and the business practices in other countries, in order to be able to develop further regional markets or in order to find out, when you must also register for tax purposes in another country or must file a tax return there.
Benefitax GmbH is an independent member of the alliance GGI Geneva Group International AG Zurich (hereinafter mentioned as “GGI”). Since we participate in conferences of GGI every year, we know many experts personally or have already worked with them. This builds confidence. We will gladly refer you to the appropriate consultants abroad.
