Dual Citizenship, Inheritance Law, Trademark Law - tax

By: Liebrecht Hubertus Rechtsanwalt  09-12-2011

In terms of inheritance tax questions, the Double Taxation Convention existing between Canada and Germany and also between the United States and Germany is of crucial importance.

You are invited to contact us if you have any problems with German inheritance taxes.

We are pleased to assist you with the preparation of your tax inheritance decleration and to support you when dealing with the German tax authorities. Because we cooperate closely with our German partner offices, we will also be able to represent you in legal appeal proceedings.

For gifts, a special gift tax applies under German law, for which a statement must be filed. We are pleased to help you handle these procedures that are generally considered unusual and are not known in North America.

When it comes to Canadian tax provisions, we are pleased to collaborate with your personal Canadian tax advisor. Also, for many years we have successfully teamed up with a German speaking Canadian tax firm here in Vancouver, a company that has intimate knowledge of German tax law.

This allows us to offer you comprehensive consulting services regarding taxation issues arising for residents of Canada and Germany, with special consideration of the Double Taxation Convention.

Dual Citizenship, Inheritance Law, Trademark Law - citizenship

You are a Canadian/American citizen, but had previously the German citizenship, or are of German descent and would like to reacquire the German citizenship by way of repatriation without forfeiting your current citizenship. However, you hesitate because you are aware of the fact that this step would automatically result in the loss of your German citizenship, which you are not willing to give up due to existing ties to Germany.


Dual Citizenship, Inheritance Law, Trademark Law - probateandestate

Occasionally, a testator will leave behind a community of heirs; due to the large distances, Canadian co-heirs are often faced with communication problems that hamper their ability to come to effective decisions. As soon as a foreign jurisdiction is involved in an estate matter, the future testator and his or her beneficiaries are confronted with a complex set of problems.
