Proactive tax planning avoids problems

Companies we have advised when they first began doing business in Germany (e.g. by helping them set up a subsidiary, drafting employment contracts, etc.) also often rely on WINHELLER for tax consulting services, which are provided by our experienced international tax team.

Planning ahead in this manner avoids problems and saves costs down the line. Some of the tax issues that should be dealt with early through proactive tax planning include:

Loans and financing:

  • How to finance the German subsidiary (loan or equity)?

Director pay and payroll:

  • Is there a limit as to the managing director´s salary?
  • Is the managing director required to pay German social security taxes?

Tax returns:

  • How should the German Revenue Service’s catalog of detailed questions be answered after the company has been incorporated?

Transfer pricing:

  • How should the rendering of services or the delivery of goods to the German company (or to the parent company abroad) be invoiced and what prices should be applied? 

Ready for a change?

If you already have a tax accountant and are pleased with his services, we are happy to limit our services to legal matters. However, if you are not satisfied with your current accountant, we can make the process of transferring your tax return, accounting and payroll matters to WINHELLER fast and painless.

There are strategic and cost advantages to be had by receiving legal, accounting and tax advice from a single source. Furthermore, WINHELLER has a broad understanding of international tax matters and has served a large number of international corporate and private clients from diverse industries,  including the financial services providers, non-profits, religious organizations and private foundations. And if you choose us for all of your legal, accounting and tax advice, we will take make sure that your data is transferred quickly and securely.

Cost-effective working relationship

A very significant cost factor in legal and tax consulting is the amount of time spent on communication, research and case development. If companies retain two different firms to handle their legal and tax consulting, the amount of time spent on these matters can easily double.

Duplicating communication, research and case development efforts is not just highly inefficient and very expensive: it is also error-prone. Thus, in our experience, tax and legal advice should come from a single source

Statutory and hourly fees

We pride ourselves on providing specialized international tax advisory services at reasonable and competitive rates. For any ongoing accounting work, drafting of tax returns and annual financial statements, we usually charge rates pursuant to the official German Tax Consultants’ Fee Ordinance. Other legal work and tax advice is generally charged on an hourly rate basis.
