Real Estate Taxation


With property transactions and property developments, active support with tax matters is extremely important. By identifying and solving tax pitfalls and developing creative constructions for tax purposes, these transactions and developments can be optimized from a financial point of view.

CMS advises on the purchase and sale of investment property, structuring the purchase and sale of investment portfolios or setting up investment products in property. We also advise you on selecting international REIT structures, including the Dutch FBI (fiscal investment institution). We will also assist you in setting up and structuring public/private partnerships or partnerships between property parties. In addition we can set up innovative tax-effective financing and lease structures.

You can also rely on our services in the area of turnover and transfer tax, corporation tax and income tax. Together with our partners in CMS we can solve your international tax-related property problems.

We assist property developers, building firms, institutional investors, housing corporations, care institutions, municipalities and other (semi-) government bodies, who can rely on our sound advice in all in these practice areas.
