    Recognising tax optimisation potential

    Time and again we experience that important tax optimisation potential is unknown to our clients. Thanks to a combination of industry knowledge and tax expertise, we are familiar with the current regulations and exploit all possibilities without taking risks. Some examples of this are:

    • Avoidable trade tax burdens due to co-letting of operating equipment

      Businesses wishing to avoid trade tax charges on rental income may not rent out operating equipment such as chimneys, goods lifts, etc. The taxation of such equipment is not permitted.

    • Optimisation of VAT structures, e.g. through fiscal unity

      Fiscal unity for VAT purposes is of great economic importance for real estate groups with companies that are not or only partially entitled to deduct input tax. This can be, for example, letting residential property or letting to banks, insurance companies, hospitals, retirement homes or nursing homes. Such rentals do not have a right to deduct input tax so any input tax incurred is a cost. Within the framework of a VAT fiscal unity, it is possible for companies in these areas to provide services to each other that are not subject to VAT and therefore do not lead to non-deductible input tax amounts.
