Transactions

See main contacts »
Roschier's Tax & Structuring practice is involved in most transactions where the firm acts as counsel. The practice operates in a fully integrated way with the firm’s other practices, which benefits our team by providing extensive exposure to other areas of law and expertise, as well as a broader understanding of the client’s business. This integration has contributed to our team's long-term position as a market leader and has enabled our lawyers to stay on top of the continuously evolving legislative and business environments.

We offer a wide range of tax services, including everything from planning to implementation, but our primary focus is on the following:
  • Tax and corporate structuring related to mergers and acquisitions
  • Private equity transactions
  • Tax structuring of investment funds
  • Public company restructurings and tender offers
  • Tax planning related to financing and financial instruments
  • Real estate transactions
  • Management participations and other incentive schemes
  • Business restructurings
  • Transfer pricing
  • Transaction- and fund-related VAT issues
Applying an advance ruling from the Finnish Tax Administration or the Central Tax Board is a good and often essential way to mitigate tax risks. We regularly prepare advance ruling applications related to things like acquisition and financing structures, tax neutrality of intra-group restructurings, Finnish permanent establishments and VAT treatment of financial services. Preparing an advance ruling application requires good understanding of tax law, the client's business, and ongoing transactions. In addition, we have good experience of enhanced cooperation with the Finnish Tax Administration in cases where applying an advance ruling is not a time-efficient alternative.
