Partner, Tax, Corporate Tax Services

KPMG AG Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft

For 20 years my focus is on tax advice to international groups of companies with German business. This comprises groups headquartered in Scandinavia, due to the proximity to Northern Germany in particular in Denmark. 

As the Head of the Country Practice Denmark at KPMG in Germany, I offer tailor-made solutions to Danish businesses with operations in Germany as well as to German businesses which invest in Denmark. The close cooperation and the regular knowledge sharing with my colleagues at KPMG Denmark is an important part of my work.

In addition to current tax advice (e.g. fulfillment of tax compliance duties and assistance to clients in tax audits by the tax authorities) I assist my clients in cross-border tax issues related to M&A, financing structuring and transfer prices as well as indirect tax implications from cross-border transactions. 

In relation to investments in Germany (by using corporations, partnerships or branches) I help my clients in all phases of the investments with respect to tax and legal issues and assist to ensure the fulfillment of all duties of notification, registration and declarations.
