The Challenge of
International Taxation

Due to the steadily intensifying globalization of the markets, the investments of domestic companies abroad (Outbound) as well as those of companies resident in foreign countries in Germany (Inbound) have significantly increased. 

Companies engaging in international business are not just confronted by complex domestic regulations but in addition face foreign law provisions as well as bilateral and multilateral agreemens, especially Double Tax Conventions. 

In addition European Law has gained in importance in cross-border activities and is to be considered in cross border business decisions with a nexus in European Member States.

To this background it becomes obvious that International Tax Law represents a complex and significant field, that is to be considered when contemplating cross border business activities.
