VAT'S OUR PASSION

You can know something about everything or know a lot about something. We decided on the latter and concentrated on VAT law and customs law. Our specialization is the basis for the qualified, practical and successful advice we offer our clients. Our lawyers are in demand as acknowledged experts who are able to provide clients with clear and precise approaches and solutions.

Our expertise is underscored by our regular contributions to leading professional publications, as well as by the requests we receive to participate as speakers at significant lectures and seminars.

KMLZ is a name which has become synonymous with VAT. Founded in 2006, today our team, of more than 40 professionals in Munich and Düsseldorf, works on both national and international cases, predominantly in the fields of VAT and customs law.

How we work.

We do not use the subjunctive form. We provide you with clear statements. We commit ourselves because we are convinced. We will demonstrate our conviction – at home and abroad, before the tax authorities, and if necessary, also before the courts.

Our work does not stop at borders.

We advise our clients on matters in Europe and worldwide. We can draw on a strong network of experienced and leading VAT experts, in all Member States of the European Union and beyond, to provide our clients with international advice at the highest levels.

We support both small and large companies.

Our clients include companies of all sizes (from SMC to DAX listed companies). Our clients rely on our VAT expertise both in large and important cases and on a routine day to day basis.

We offer efficiency.

Rely on our expertise and thereby avoid time-consuming research and unnecessary risks. Treat us as your outsourced VAT department.

ECJ - VAT group: Much ado about (in the end) nothing? Controlling company as taxable person – Intra-group supplies taxable?

Long awaited, now they are here: The ECJ judgments regarding the VAT group. In summary, it remains the case that the controlling company is the taxable person for the group. In this respect, German law does not violate EU law. However, the ECJ's position on the taxability of supplies between group members remains unclear. In addition, the ECJ again shows that the parent company’s right to intervene in the activities of the subsidiary cannot be seen as mandatory in order for the establishment of a VAT group. The issue of supplies carried out free of charge, which was also dealt with by the ECJ, will be covered shortly in an upcoming newsletter.
