German market

VanOlde advises German (multinational) companies and (institutional) real estate investors that are active in the Netherlands. Communication and written advice is provided in German when preferred. Partners of vanOlde travel to Germany on a regular basis and are active members of the Deutsch Niederländische Handelskammer.

1. German (multinational) companies
VanOlde has a strong focus on advising German (multinational) companies, including family businesses with Dutch operations and/or investments. VanOlde provides integrated advice regarding all aspects of Dutch corporate income tax, transfer pricing and VAT in relation to corporate restructurings, rationalizations, and as M&A transactions. We are specialists on Dutch/German cross-border tax aspects and application of the Dutch/German tax treaty. We work together often with befriended law firms in Germany.
Elements that we regularly advise on are interest deduction limitation rules, withholding tax implications, ATAD 1, ATAD 2 and Pillar 1&2 aspects. Where needed, we assist with obtaining tax rulings.

VanOlde also assists corporate taxpayers regarding all tax compliance formalities. Services include preparing annual corporate tax returns, performing tax calculations and providing insight into the corporate tax position. Our tax lawyers also prepare VAT returns and DAC6 filings.

2. German real estate investors
We assist German (institutional) real estate investors with hands-on buy- and sell-side advice on all Dutch tax aspects of real estate transactions and in respect of all asset classes (including offices, residential, logistics and retail). We conduct tax DDs, prepare transaction documentation (share and asset deals) and assist with all tax aspects required to successfully close real estate transactions.

We assist in setting up efficient and robust investment structures that are aimed at preventing double taxation and being compliant with Dutch and international tax rules.

We advise on all Dutch tax aspects related to German real estate investment funds (Publikumsfonds and Spezialfonds) and their participants.
