Foundations Law

Foundations are a significant economic and socio-political factor in Europe. Following associations and not-for-profit cooperatives, they account for the most frequently selected form of organization used to pursue not-for-profit objectives. KSB INTAX advises its clients on possible uses of foundations in different legal and tax-law structures (family foundations, dependent foundations, not-for-profit foundations, church foundations, public foundations).

[Translate to Englisch:] Spiegelnde Tür

Our advice covers the founding and ongoing administration of foundations as well as counselling the governing institutions of foundations – also with respect to the areas of tax law and liability/compliance. In this context it is especially important to understand processes and requirements specific to not-for-profit organizations. Many of our advisors are steeped in practice with first-hand knowledge of the characteristic mode of functioning and mechanisms of such institutions thanks to their own voluntary commitments in foundations, associations and service clubs.
