Overview

Overview

Wolf Theiss has always been ahead of the curve. We were one of the first law firms in Austria to provide advice on national and international tax law, and we're still setting standards for tax advice in Austria and CEE/SEE.

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;
  • real estate related tax advice: acquisitions and sales of real estate through asset deals and share deals; minimization of real estate transfer tax and of stamp duties on lease contracts;
  • advice to financial institutions regarding financial products: debt and equity instruments, funds;
  • taxation issues related to crypto assets;
  • tax litigation; and
  • fiscal criminal law including self-disclosures.

One of our partners has a dual qualification as a tax advisor and as an attorney-at-law. All of our tax lawyers 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 all relevant trends.
