International tax law
At Ausserhofer & Partner, our team of specialists is always at our clients’ disposal to provide them with expert advice and assistance on cross-border issues and to assist them with any queries on matters relating to international tax law.
Advising on cross-border VAT and withholding tax issues, as well as advising on topics which require the correct application and interpretation of double taxation agreements is one of our areas of expertise in this regard.
We also specialise in providing advice and assistance on the foundation of permanent establishments and companies in Italy. We assist foreign companies in choosing the most appropriate market entry strategy for the Italian market (permanent establishment, subsidiary), we ensure that the correct tax classification is maintained including, but not limited to, VAT (direct VAT registration, fiscal representatives, the VAT threshold limit for Italy), we ensure the correct registration of employees in Italy and we offer support on any issues pertaining to arrangements as regards the secondment of employees to Italy.
In short, we ensure you stay compliant with all tax and social security obligations in Italy, we handle all administrative formalities and register with all necessary public authorities, thereby allowing you and your company to focus on your core business and to be successful.
The issue of transfer pricing has increasingly come to the fore in recent years. The scope of Ausserhofer & Partner's services in this area include advice on all transfer pricing matters, support for clients in preparing transfer pricing documentation in compliance with the law and providing assistance in the defence of transfer pricing arrangements in the event of a tax audit.
It goes without saying that we also support domestic companies in their activities abroad, including but not limited to, any companies considering relocating their activities abroad (esterovestizione) and in all matters pertaining to expatriates and employee secondments.
As German-speaking tax consultants who possess an in-depth knowledge of Italian laws and the Italian market, coupled with an understanding of the Italian business mentality, we provide a unique and invaluable advantage to our clients from German-speaking countries. Clients are safe in the knowledge that we speak their language, and can rest assured that we truly understand what they are seeking to convey and achieve and will be provided with the highest level of professional services possible. We can also arrange for any documents to be translated into German for you, if not already done so, and if so requested by the client.
