Private assets | family offices | asset succession


Private investments are becoming increasingly important. In addition to real estate assets, capital assets represent a major factor in providing for old age. Statutory provisions such as withholding tax, tax agreements and the widening of the scope of the EU savings directive necessitate the foresighted planning of capital assets. In particular the observance of current conditions, family backgrounds and your own strategies provide the framework for the structuring of your asset interests.


The withholding tax regulations especially lead to increased complexity of the process. New guidelines and requirements make an intensive analysis necessary. This is also true when the process is made with banks in Germany. This is the only way the investor can maintain their tax obligations and safeguard their tax rights.
