The paper discusses four major changes and implications of doing business in Germany:

  • Forfeited tax losses at change of control of a German company
  • Voluntary correction of tax errors
  • Transposition of changes to the European directive on administrative cooperation in tax matters and other measures to combat the erosion of the tax base (Anti-BEPS-I Law)
  • Limitation to the deduction of royalties for the use of intangible assets (Draft Law)
