Tax law encompasses all legal norms of our legal system that relate to taxes in the broadest sense. As such, it affects virtually all companies and private individuals. Frequent changes in tax laws and regulations and the complexity of the matter often present companies and taxpayers with major challenges. 

The tax law experts at FPS advise and represent both national and international clients and find individual solutions for them in all areas of tax law. The services also include advice on optimising and structuring company acquisitions and sales as well as restructuring measures, due diligence and succession planning. In addition, the FPS tax law team assists its clients in criminal matters involving tax law and in out-of-court and in-court proceedings.


  • Transactions and restructuring measures

    Wide-ranging and complex tax law issues arise in any type of business transaction. Working alongside our specialists in corporate law, among others, we structure and optimise every transaction in the interests of our clients.

  • Private clients

    Besides optimising the tax structure of estates and business succession plans, we advise and support wealthy individuals, entrepreneurs and their families in all private matters concerning their legal and tax affairs. This particularly includes assisting with all ongoing income tax and international tax matters (including expatriation and asset structuring), advising on the structuring of family businesses and foundations, and providing support in the area of tax compliance, including the preparation of income tax and inheritance / capital transfer tax returns.

  • Optimising estates and business succession plans

    Detailed tax advice is essential when dealing with estates and business succession plans. Failure to put an optimal tax structure in place can soon become disadvantageous. We have the appropriate expertise and find solutions with our clients’ interests in mind.

  • Establishing corporate structures

    The tax burden of business activities, investments and financing can often be optimised. We work out tax structures for groups of companies and help our clients to plan and implement their projects.

  • Support for real estate investors

    We are on hand to support real estate investors throughout the entire cycle of their activity, from the choice of the best legal form and corporate structure to the acquisition and sale of projects, and tax-optimised letting.
