Wolf Theiss has always been ahead of the curve, becoming one of the first law firms in Austria to provide advice on national and international tax law. From a quick glance at our clients, it's easy to see why we're still setting standards for tax advice in Austria and CEE/SEE. The Wolf TheissTax practice group does not shy from complex cases and is used to covering them from various tax and legal angles.

What distinguishes Wolf Theiss from other firms is that our lawyers specialize within their practice area and each lawyer has his or her specific fields of tax advice. Currently we offer the following kinds of tax services:

  • Corporate tax advice: M&A-related work, corporate restructurings including domestic and cross-border mergers and demergers, holding company structures, double tax treaties;
  • Tax planning for private clients: coming to Austria and leaving Austria, setting up of trusts and foundations, estate planning and asset protection;
  • Advice to financial institutions regarding financial products: debt and equity instruments, funds;
  • Tax litigation; and
  • Fiscal criminal law including voluntary self-disclosures.

Our partners have dual qualifications as certified public tax advisors and attorneys-at-law. They not only have years of experience, but also regularly hold lectures and publish on recent developments in this permanently changing field. This combination of practical experience, academic research and continuous training guarantees that we anticipate trends.
