On July 6, 2010, the managing partner of Hwuason law firm, Liu Tianyong together with Hwuason lawyers delegation arrived in Vienna, Austria, and visited the headquarters of the Austrian tax firm LBG. At the meeting, numerous hot discussions on tax practice issues of both counties were set forth.
LBG is the leading local tax consulting and auditing firm with some 400 employees working in 30 offices all over Austria. Different from some international tax firms which concentrate on audit, LBG focuses on tax consulting for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises. However, LBG realized the new opportunities in tax business with the trend of international development and EU enlargement as well.
The firm pointed out that although the tax systems in Austria and Germany might appear similar at the first sight, there are significant differences when it comes to the details. In comparison to Austrian Lawyers with the background in civil and public law Austrian tax consultants and chartered public accountants are highly skilled and specialized in tax law. This is why 99% of tax business in Austria is managed by tax consultants and not by tax lawyers as in some other European countries.
With EU integration and economic globalization, tax-related business and tax consulting will play an increasingly important role. The successful experience of the exchange visits is also worthy of learning and referencing for local law firms in China.
On July 6, 2010, the managing partner of Hwuason law firm, Liu Tianyong together with a Hwuason lawyers delegation arrived in Austria, and visited the famous local tax firm LeitnerLeitner. At the meeting, numerous hot discussions on tax practice issues of both countries were set forth.
LeitnerLeitner is one of the leading tax consulting and auditing companies in the CEE/SEE countries.
We learned that tax lawyers in Austria are highly valued and experienced both, in business and law matters.
Although Austrian business entities still focus on the European market, more and more Austrian entrepreneurs are taking the chance of going Far East, especially to China. Tax-related business and tax lawyers will play an increasingly important role and, thus, strong partnerships between both continents will be needed herefor. The successful experience of the exchange visits is worthy of learning and referencing for local law firms in China.
