Tax in Austria

Binder Grösswang

The large team at Binder Grösswang covers a range of tax issues, advising national and international companies in matters pertaining to international and EU tax law, restructuring, transfer pricing, transactional tax, tax audits and litigation. The tax practice is closely aligned with the firm’s private client portfolio, offering (U)HNWI advice on private wealth and tax litigation. Christian Wimpissinger, who focuses on double taxation treaties, litigation, and accounting law, and Clemens Willvonseder, whose expertise lies in corporate and transactional tax, as well as VAT and stamp duty law, lead the team.

‘I have used and worked with the tax department extensively on a number of inbound and outbound matters and have always been very pleased with the quality and timing of advice received. They have always returned with solutions-oriented advice, where possible.’

‘Christian Wimpissinger is very smart, very capable and very responsive. I very much appreciate Christian’s precision, conciseness and solutions-oriented approach to a very complex area of law (tax). I only wish I had more Austrian matters for greater occasion to work with Christian!’

‘Very responsive and competent with cutting-edge technical skills in international taxation. Understand industries and business.’

‘Christian Wimpissinger stands out for responsiveness, a user-friendly approach, and reliability.’

‘The tax law practice of Binder Grösswang is unique, since only a few law firms in Austria do provide tax advice and the team is working at the level of Big Four firms when it comes to managing projects and providing advice on tax law matters.’

‘Christian Wimpissinger and Manuela Wenger are very responsive and have the ability to explain complex tax law matters in words that do not sound all that technical. They can manoeuvre teams with diverse cultural backgrounds easily and are often in a role of managing projects, meaning bring together international advisers with business teams.’

‘Binder Grösswang’s tax team is known for its technical expertise and its willingness to find pragmatic solutions to their clients’ issues. They strive to stay on top (and ahead) of international and domestic tax developments, and have a solid informal network of international firms with which they closely collaborate.’

‘Clemens Willvonseder is dynamic, knowledgeable in his area and very competent in handling cross-border and cross-practice transactions. He is the single tax lawyer I would recommend to my clients dealing with Austrian tax matters.
