External audits, tax disputes and investigative proceedings are increasing sharply; proceedings are becoming more efficient and more stringent. As a result of this development, disputed tax proceedings raise questions that require extensive experience and professional competence to answer. KPMG employs proven specialists who successfully resolve contentious tax proceedings for companies and individuals. Our team ensures that potential leeway is utilised. Procedural efficiency and appropriate solutions are always our focus. 

In recent years, KPMG specialists have achieved significant successes before tax courts, the Federal Constitutional Court and the European Court of Justice. In cross-border proceedings, our German specialists draw on the international KPMG network. 

In addition, KPMG has been offering solution-oriented advice on (penalty-exempt) voluntary declarations for many years. In addition to the subsequent declaration in the context of a voluntary disclosure, this also includes procedures for the prevention of criminal tax risks in the company.

  • Support during tax audits, advice and support during meetings and negotiations 
  • Advice on avoiding tax audit risks; development of strategies to minimise risks
