Company pension schemes

Company pension schemes are growing in importance as a crucial part of total remuneration, also and especially in economically volatile times.
They are often a decisive factor when it comes to competing for expert and management staff. Simultaneously, companies offering pension schemes operate in an increasingly regulated legal and tax environment.
Adapting a pension plan to the company's needs and objectives makes such a plan attractive and contributes to the success of the company and its employees. Rödl & Partner advises and assists you and your company in the tax optimisation of your pension commitments and your employees' pension scheme as well as in their structuring in compliance with labour law.
