Legal Advice

Criminal Tax Law

The boundaries between legal tax savings and illegal tax avoidance can sometimes be fluid, and are often hard for laypeople to recognize at first glance. Yet it’s clear that tax avoidance ceased long ago to be a minor offense. If there’s a risk of being targeted by the investigators, it’s especially important to move prudently.

If there’s a ques­tion of tax avo­i­dance or tax under­pay­ment, you need not only a know­ledge of tax law, but also a tho­rough under­stan­ding of cri­mi­nal pro­ce­dure if you’re going to hold your own against the tax inves­ti­ga­tors, the office for fines and cri­mi­nal offen­ses, or the pub­lic prose­cu­tor, and in court. You need to think out the necessary steps with experts right from the start. For example, you should look into whe­ther you can vol­un­ta­rily come for­ward and thus qua­lify for amnesty. Not only that, but the for­mal requi­re­ments in this connec­tion have to be satis­fied to the let­ter – some­t­hing that’s almost impos­si­ble for a lay per­son acting on their own. We offer you skil­led defense in cri­mi­nal tax mat­ters, with effec­tive assi­s­tance in sear­ches, sei­zu­res, inves­ti­ga­tive pro­cee­dings and at trial. Our range of advice also inclu­des pre­ven­tive con­sul­ting to keep your tax practi­ces from ever taking on any hint of impro­priety in the first place.
