Position

Artur Bugsgang specialises in tax law and has thorough knowledge of personal and corporate taxation (and thereby company law) as well as VAT and indirect taxes.

Artur’s primary practice areas are tax law and company law as a result of the close interrelation between these two areas. He thus deals with aspects of company and tax law relating to the sale and purchase of enterprises, ownership transition, capital injection, mergers and demergers and any other general business advice in connection with the operation of enterprises. Additional practice areas are VAT and indirect taxes, particularly car registration taxes.

In 2018, Artur was given a fellow lawyers’ award, Sagførernes Auktioners Legat, in recognition of his contribution as a member of the Fiscal Affairs Committee (which i.a. prepares consultation responses to the Danish Ministry of Taxation) under the Council of the Danish Bar and Law Society.

Artur has authored various articles on tax, VAT and financial services in Danish and international tax journals. For more than 20 years, Artur was a part-time lecturer in tax law at the University of Copenhagen.
