International transformations

You are in the best hands with our expert legal advice

Since the end of 2006 enables the reformed German Transformation Act on the basis of the EU Merger Directive (as well as the corresponding provisions in the other legal systems of the EU Member States and the EEA States) so-called cross-border mergers of corporations. The relocation of a German company into a non-(EU) country is, however, still not possible or only with great difficulty, disregarding the legal form of the SE (Societas Europaea).

PNHR, as the first, has handled such cross-border mergers and allowed the clients to relocate their entrepreneurial activities without triggering income taxes in another EU country. The team restructuring of companies creates for this the necessary transaction planning in close cooperation with our clients and cooperation partners in the non-EU/EEA countries and prepares all in Germany necessary corporate law and tax drafts and documents.

The individual steps are developed in workshops together with the clients and the foreign consultants - usually in English - and fully explained to ensure the optimized process of the transaction.
