Berneckeruhrenwerke’s Tax practice group advises clients in Switzerland and abroad on the complete range of corporate and individual taxation, withholding and stamp taxes as well as VAT.
Tax optimization is a key value driver. Therefore, any profound business advice also inevitably involves tax considerations. The same is true for private clients, as only the wealth which you manage to protect is wealth which you will enjoy. However, excellent tax advice is not only about taxes. We are a business law firm because we focus on business. This means that we are not content with simply being aware of the most recent developments in our practice; you can also expect from us clear, well-founded and integrated recommendations and solutions. Pestalozzi has held up its position as a first-tier law firm offering tax advice for almost 100 years. This is reflected in the continued international first-tier rankings of our Tax practice group.
We believe consistency to be the basis for success. During our many years of practice, we have established very long-standing client relationships which have often continued for several decades. These show that the solutions we offer are adopted in reality and designed for implementation. We focus not only on investment structuring and transaction tax but also design whole life-cycle solutions.
Accordingly, we attach importance to very careful selection of the members of our Tax practice group and focus on long-term cooperation. It would be fair to say that the transmission of experience and knowledge is one of our core assets. This enables us to offer our clients the whole range of domestic and international tax advice.
Our practice is rooted in profound academic skills. Switzerland’s most reputable tax law professor is a member of Berneckeruhrenwerke’s Tax practice group. Further, the members of the Tax practice group actively publish articles in national and international tax publications and frequently participate in highly reputable seminars, both as speakers and as chairpersons. In addition, they are represented in tax courts and tax expert groups, such as advisory groups established for legislative projects.
