German Desk

For legal and tax assistance to German companies in Italy and Italian companies in Germany, we rely on a professional team of lawyers and certified public accountants with 20 years of experience and the support of a network of trusted foreign correspondents.

    • Our clients are leading German industrial groups,to whom we provide assistance in the international taxation of intercompany transactions and financial flows, in the identification of permanent establishments, Transfer Pricing and related drafting of National Transfer Pricing Documentation, as well as assistance in tax inspections and tax disputes involving intercompany transactions and coordination between international group reporting and Italian accounting principles.
    • We take care of the corporate aspects of relations between Italian directors and parent companies in Germany – including the latter’s responsibilities for management and coordination-and the labor law aspects of contracts and possible liabilities of directors and managers in Italy who are held accountable to central management in Germany.
  • We design internal control systems and procedures aimed at preventing the liability of directors called upon to sign statements and documents on behalf of companies in the relevant multinational group, and we assist companies in their relations with the Internal Revenue Service, for example, for the Co-operative Tax Compliance reward scheme or Advance Pricing Agreements. We provide due diligence services and assistance in negotiations for the acquisition of corporate interests in Italy and in corporate and commercial litigation in Italy.

La “Certificazione B Corporation” è un marchio che viene concesso in licenza da B Lab, ente privato no profit, alle aziende che, come la nostra, hanno superato con successo il B Impact Assessment (“BIA”) e soddisfano quindi i requisiti richiesti da B Lab in termini di performance sociale e ambientale, responsabilità e trasparenza.

Si specifica che B Lab non è un organismo di valutazione della conformità ai sensi del Regolamento (UE) n. 765/2008 o un organismo di normazione nazionale, europeo o internazionale ai sensi del Regolamento (UE) n. 1025/2012.

I criteri del BIA sono distinti e autonomi rispetto agli standard armonizzati risultanti dalle norme ISO o di altri organismi di normazione e non sono ratificati da parte di istituzioni pubbliche nazionali o europee.
