- Representation of our Client's Interests in Audits and Criminal Tax Proceedings
Audits put companies in an uncomfortable position, even though this is a very routine process. The company and company employees feel under pressure, and some auditors take advantage of that. It is therefore advisable to be well informed about rights and obligations, customary procedures, appropriate conduct in tense situations, limitations to be observed by the auditors and the potential impact of audit activities as this allows you to act proactively. We provide guidance and suggestions to our clients on how to professionally conclude the audit and, at the same time, protect their interests in the best possible manner.
We also represent the interests of our clients in opposition proceedings and complaints procedures.
When questions in the area of criminal tax law need to be tackled or fiscal court proceedings are looming, a lawyer with extensive expertise in criminal tax law is ready and waiting for you: we support you in criminal tax proceedings and assist you during all stages of legal proceedings before fiscal courts and the Federal Fiscal Court (Bundesfinanzhof).
