Exploit all the advantages in line with the law.

Using profits for charitable purposes in a timely manner, is an approach that is recognised under company law, and companies that do so are granted tax privileges. However, non‐profit does not necessarily mean that there are no profits. Strictly defined rules for tax exemption and tax privileges for donors pose significant challenges and risks for associations, charitable limited companies, foundations and other non-profit organisations. Guidance from an experienced consultant for non-profit organisations is necessary for handling these issues.

At Breidenbach Kurth Haag you have come to the right place for this. A correspondingly certified tax consultant and a team of qualified staff members will help you to exploit all the advantages while conforming to the law, and to successfully perform your charitable work on the long run.
