Stamp duties and transfer taxes

Austrian stamp duties have a history that dates back centuries. However, they remain to be observed in many types of business transactions.

We have substantial experience in advising on the Austrian stamp duty aspects of transactions in the entire area of business law and in implementing appropriate stamp duty planning. The scope of transactions in which we frequently advise on Austrian stamp duty issues spans from lease agreements, over asset deals, to specific agreements in the context of large scale financing transactions.

Transfer taxes are of particular relevance from an Austrian tax perspective where a transaction involves Austrian real property.

Our firm regularly advises real property developers and businesses as well as private individuals owning, directly or indirectly, real property on the structuring of their real property investment and the acquisition, divestiture and all types of reorganizations of companies owning Austrian real property.
