We for you in

We are passionate about the VAT

The VAT – the most important tax in a company’s day-to-day business – has become a highly complex tax matter. Incorrect structures or settlement processes can lead to considerable damages. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that the specialised advice that is rendered in this context is both competent and practical.

LeitnerLeitner deals with VAT-related problems and challenges every single day, and our experts use their knowledge to guide companies through the complexity of the VAT. From a difficult legal opinion for a large company to a simple compliance question for an SME in Austria or abroad: we provide the best practical solution and clear recommendations for your daily business.

A central contact person is always made available for cross-border and interdisciplinary projects. In this way, our solutions also apply across the border and are always efficient and practical.

Our specialists maintain excellent networks with national and international authorities and other international VAT groups, along with experienced VAT experts worldwide. As a member of the VAT Expert Group of the European Commission, VAT expert Hannes Gurtner also plays a key role in designing European VAT legislation.
