REAL ESTATE IN FRANCE

-

Paris—Europe’s largest office market

The largest office market in Europe is found in Paris. German funds alone hold more than 20 billion euros in real estate in France. TLB’s lawyers have been acting for institutional investors and banks in real estate transactions in this market for over 20 years. International transactions are inevitably intercultural transactions as well. Why? Because simply everything in a foreign country is different. TLB provides professional advice to German individuals and commercial undertakings working or transacting in France. We explain the relevant areas of French law to them in the German language using terminology and concepts familiar to them. And we inform them upfront about the things they must pay attention to in France and about what they need to best accomplish their goals. Sound and genuinely successful transactions in a foreign country depend on lawyers with a great deal of experience and with in-depth knowledge of the countries on both sides of the border. And in some instances it is the connections they have that are just what it takes to make all participants happy.

TAX IN FRANCE

CERTAINTY IN THE AREA
OF INCOME TAX

The TLB team looks back on 20 successful years in France—years of serving the tax needs of German executives working in France. Income tax issues can come as a big surprise to individuals working for a period of time in France. We explain the idiosyncrasies of the French tax system to employers and employees alike—in German, English and in the French language. We also provide the individual contacts needed to ensure optimal tax results.

CONFIDENTIALITY—A MUST

Mutual trust is something extremely important to us. Add extensive knowledge of international tax law and decades of experience to this and you have the ingredients for success. When it comes to tax matters, confidentiality is of utmost importance. Although it is common for employers to assume the costs of the advisory services obtained by their employees, some information—such as investment income—does not concern them. Such confidential information will never be passed on to the employer without the employee’s consent. We also keep a close eye on costs and make sure that all unnecessary services are avoided. We will be happy to provide you with references at your request.
