Making investments worthwhile.
Your properties, our tax advice.

Properties are popular investment products in times of low interest rates and housing shortages. This is true for owner-occupiers as well as for private and large-scale investors. It is vital that not only a wide range of financial aspects, but also various tax-related aspects are considered in advance. These include land transfer tax, speculation tax or taxes that become due when selling a property.

We will advise and support you in all matters regarding real estate, to make sure that your investments are based on a solid foundation from the outset. We are here to assist you throughout your property’s entire life cycle: from financing and acquisition, via maintenance and accounting, through to a possible sale.

With Breidenbach Kurth Haag you will benefit from many years of experience and a wide spectrum of skills in real estate tax consultancy. We regularly take part in further training measures in this field, and are therefore highly specialised and always up to date. For example, thanks to our “Certified Consultants for Real Estate Taxation and Property Management (IFU / ISM gGmbH)”. Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to discuss your investment.

Your investment decision.
Based on a solid foundation.

Can property tax and land transfer tax, building a house or selling a house, be offset against tax liabilities? How do you calculate speculation tax for properties? Which rules apply in the case of owner-occupation? Most importantly: which is the most favourable financing model for me?

Many important questions regarding financial and tax aspects arise when buying a house or a condominium.

The situation should be carefully examined before the purchase, since real estate investments are usually long-term decisions. It does not matter in this context, whether it is an apartment for owner-occupation or a family home, a buy-to-let property, a holiday home or company premises.

Drawing upon our well-coordinated network of experienced estate agents, funders, building surveyors and lawyers, we will prepare a perfect basis for decision-making for your investment.
