Real estate

Real estate

The taxation of real estate under German tax law is characterised by a wide range of regulations that are sometimes difficult to understand and economically difficult to comprehend.

Our REAL ESTATE services support you both during the investment and throughout the entire life cycle of your property. You also benefit from our in-depth expertise in corporate transactions involving property ownership, for example in real estate transfer tax law.

Our experts will also show you what structuring options are available for property transactions:

  • Land held as private or business assets
  • Choice of legal form and financing
  • Open or closed-end property funds
  • Current developments (e.g. new investment tax law from 2018)
  • Tax optimisation for restructurings
  • Transfers in the context of anticipated succession
