International family-owned companies


The experts at Rödl & Partner advise family entrepreneurs and family-owned companies of all legal forms on their international acquisitions. There are often special points to take into consideration with regard to taxation of international investments against the background of the domestic corporate structure or if the shareholders are resident in different countries. Family-owned companies frequently have the legal form of a partnership which leads to particular complexity in terms of tax and cross-border companies.


We offer comprehensive support in the following areas:
  • Taxation of family shareholders of domestic partnerships living abroad 
  • Taxation of domestic family shareholders of foreign partnerships
  • Consulting services for inheritance tax for international shareholders
  • International ring-fencing structures for tax and separation of capital spheres
  • Structures for international investments designed to mitigate tax (e.g. integrated company model)
  • Complex international structures (e.g. cross-border atypical silent partnerships)
  • Family foundations
