Tax

National and international tax systems are extensive, complex and constantly subject to change. They require a comprehensive knowledge of tax law from both a legal and fiscal perspective. Houthoff's multi-disciplinary Tax Team has this expertise and assists clients in any tax matters that they are faced with. We assist in matters ranging from fiscal assistance in high-end corporate and financial transactions to transfer pricing and litigation in national and international tax disputes. Our Tax Team is one of the few tax teams that litigates before both civil courts and tax courts, and also, if necessary, before the Dutch Supreme Court. Our Tax Team has become a market leader in the field of international restructuring, M&A, real estate, finance and investment management.

Examples of our experience

We help companies to navigate complex and ever-changing national and international laws to ensure that they are fully compliant through an efficient structure. We are renowned for our outstanding experience in tax litigation. We are one of the few law firms in the Netherlands that litigates before both civil and tax courts, and also, if necessary, before the Dutch Supreme Court. 

International network

Our tax specialists work closely with our other practice and sector teams. Thanks to our offices in Brussels, London and New York, our representatives in Houston, Singapore and Tokyo, and our membership of Lex Mundi, we have an extensive international network and access to the best expertise in foreign tax laws and regulations. This allows us to effectively cater to our clients' international needs.
