Corporate Taxes

Solutions for corporate tax issues

Prior to fundamental operational decisions, such as the optimisation of the company structure or the question of asset transfer, Grant Thornton Austria will prepare an analysis of the current situation, work out the objectives together with you and support you in their successful implementation.

Tax issues have a central role in business restructuring. It is important to avoid design errors in order to avoid negative tax effects. In the event of an unsuccessful reorganisation, the tax burden owed as a result of the disclosure of hidden reserves is offset by a profit that in reality cannot be realised. On the other hand, there is the danger that more income tax than necessary will be paid due to an unsuccessful design of the corporate structure or incorrectly established transfer pricing structures.

Whether it is the tax-neutral design of reorganizations, strategies for loss utilization, avoidance of VAT traps or the solution of complex interface issues between balance sheet, tax and corporate law. Our goal always remains to develop economically sensible solutions for you, which also meet the requirements of the tax authorities. Of course we accompany you during the implementation process to ensure that the required premises are met.
