Lawyers for regulatory and tax compliance

Our lawyers for regulatory and tax compliance are committed to enabling their clients to comply with the regulatory and tax requirements of the German Investment Code (KAGB) and the Investment Tax Act (InvStG). 

Investment management companies, funds, custodians, asset managers, fund service providers and investors are all advised by our regulatory experts, e.g. with regard to licence and registration applications. Our lawyers also assist in the development of internal policies, for example on remuneration, and advise on all distribution and liability issues on an ongoing basis. They provide support for previously unregulated asset managers when transitioning to regulated structures while at the same time examining structuring options outside the regulatory regime. In the case of transactions involving funds, they advise on compliance with KAGB requirements.

Our tax compliance specialists help their clients to adapt fund structures to meet the provisions of the reformed Investment Tax Act. Key aspects include changes to the scheme documents and obtaining binding information from the authorities. Last but not least, our tax compliance team assists with declaration and reporting requirements.
