Lutz Meyer joined the firm in 2003. One of his main areas of work was advice on matters relating to corporate legal and tax issues for legal entities under public law (e.g. local authorities, religious bodies), associations, foundations, charities and tax-privileged businesses. His work included both consultancy on structural design (such as the planning and implementation of company restructuring/conversions), as well as tax defence advice (e.g. in the context of tax investigations) with a particular emphasis on issues relating to public interest and charity law (non-profit sector) as well as foundations and associations law.
In the area of indirect taxation, Mr. Meyer focused on national and international sales tax and customs legislation. In this regard, he advised his clients on matters relating to launching new commercial ventures at home and abroad as well as with the compliance with the various declaration obligations (e.g. organisation of registrations in a number of European countries). Without specialising in any particular industry, Mr. Meyer looked after clients such as travel companies or international trade fair organisers as well as automotive trading companies. Insurance tax legislation completed his advisory spectrum.
Lutz Meyer also dealed with proceedings in German fiscal courts
