Some may be under the impression that substance is a widely known tax concept and that there is not much to say about it.
Substance, however, is a constantly changing concept. It evolves with tax laws, jurisprudence, and doctrine, and has recently changed again with the principal purpose test (PPT) introduced by the OECD in Action 6 of their anti-base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) plan.
For this survey, we decided to put theoretical discussions aside and focus only on factual elements, providing a snapshot of the current alternative funds landscape in Luxembourg. We surveyed 62 General Partners (GPs) with a Luxembourg office that are managing various asset classes such as private equity, private debt, real estate and infrastructure.
We are delighted to share our results with you.
