Aegis Tax Lawyers specialises in Dutch and international tax law and the tax aspects of M&A and real estate. We offer high-quality advice and compliance services in the areas of corporate income tax, dividend withholding tax, VAT, payroll and income tax and real estate transfer tax.
Our client portfolio includes multinationals, large and medium-sized companies, start-ups and scale-ups, investment funds, private equity, family offices and real estate investors and developers. We pride ourselves on the strong and long-term relationships we build with them.
Aegis Tax Lawyers combines the professionalism and expertise of a large tax advisory firm with the advantages of a tax boutique. All Aegis tax lawyers and compliance managers are seasoned professionals. We have a personal and proactive approach.
Aegis Tax Lawyers works completely independently of any law or accounting firm. Instead, we have access to an extensive informal network of leading tax law firms abroad.
Aegis specialises inter alia in Dutch and international tax law. Besides providing high-quality advisory services in the fields of VAT, payroll and income tax, dividend withholding tax and real estate transfer tax, Aegis places a strong emphasis on providing advisory and compliance services in the field of corporate income tax. Tax compliance forms an important part of our full-service approach. As the corporate income tax, personal income tax and VAT returns are often the first lines of communication with the tax authorities, their preparation requires the commitment of experienced professionals. Our firm has a department that focuses specifically on preparing corporate income tax, personal income tax and VAT returns. As tax compliance is a fully integrated part of our services, any tax advice is directly implemented in the tax return and tax risks are identified at an early stage.
We advise on both day-to-day tax issues and transactions. Typical examples are the establishment and optimisation of tax and legal business and investment structures, the acquisition and sale of companies, the application of the innovation box, the coordination of tax audits, the implementation of tax risk management systems, etc.
Aegis has a dedicated team of tax compliance specialists. They prepare and file the corporate income tax, personal income tax and VAT returns, check the imposed assessments and – if necessary – file an objection. They also deal with matters such as tax accounting and tax audits.
Our Transfer Pricing services include the preparation of economic benchmarks, the implementation or optimisation of Transfer Pricing strategies and the preparation of documentation such as CbC-reports (country-by-country) and master and local files.
Our advisers often play an important role in a merger or acquisition (M&A). They guide the entire transaction, from the tax due diligence, drafting and negotiating tax provisions in contracts to the tax structuring of the acquisition as well as the so-called post-transaction integration.
Taxes play a decisive role as they are crucial for pricing, structuring methods and financing of the party to be acquired. You can come to us with all your questions about a merger and acquisition, whether you are the selling or buying party.
If you are the selling party, we are happy to assist you with, among other things, a so-called vendor due diligence in which fiscal risks of the present and the past are mapped out at an early stage. This can add a lot of value to and speed up the subsequent negotiation process. In addition, we assist you during all relevant stages of the sales process. If you are the buying party, you will have to deal with many aspects and we can assist you with the tax due diligence, structuring of the transaction, post-transaction integration, as well as issues such as issuing management participation plans. Management participation plans come in many forms. Besides equity stakes, option stakes or other rights are also possible. In all cases, it is important to tailor the structure of the plan to the specific wishes of the parties involved.

International Tax Review ranking – World Tax 2023
The annual World Tax guide is a key resource in locating specialist tax advice at the highest level. Each edition rates the tax expertise offered in various jurisdictions, giving the most comprehensive information about the market for tax advice.
World Tax is unique among directories as it classifies law firms and other tax advice providers together, rather than looking at them separately. The fact that both the market and our competitors have identified Aegis as one of the leading tax firms in the Netherlands, in both corporate and indirect tax, has pleased us tremendously.
We would like to thank our clients who have placed their trust in us over the past years and we congratulate the entire Aegis team with this important recognition.
