Overview

The Maples Group's Tax team delivers the highest quality legal advice and transactional support from offices in Ireland and Luxembourg, both European jurisdictions of choice for cross-border tax and multi-jurisdictional transactions.

Ireland's long success as a location for investment funds, securitisation companies, aircraft leasing companies, international holding companies and foreign direct investment has been driven by its beneficial tax environment and extensive double tax treaty network. Our experienced Tax team works with international and Irish clients to help them benefit from those offerings.

In addition to being a leading European investment funds location, Luxembourg has a solid reputation for reliable and stable taxation regimes. Many of our clients are Fortune 500 companies, institutional investors, and private equity houses that have integrated Luxembourg as a central hub in their global holding and cross border financing strategies. Luxembourg currently has 83 tax treaties, 49 of which can be of benefit to Luxembourg's investment funds (and 14 more in negotiation). Luxembourg also offers a wide selection of beneficial tax regimes that can be tailor-made to our clients' specific investment and business objectives.

The Maples Group has established relationships with leading international law firms and our Tax team works closely with international counsel on cross-border tax matters. We also work in tandem with other lawyers and professionals in the Maples Group to develop the most innovative and efficient solutions for our clients.

European Union Tax Law

Tax is at the forefront of the European Union policy agenda, with a range of new EU legislative tax measures such as the EU Anti-tax Avoidance Directives and the EU Mandatory Disclosure rules, along with EU State Aid investigations led by the European Commission and European Court of Justice tax caselaw.

These EU developments have a substantial impact on national tax laws in the EU Member States.

The Maples Group's Tax teams in Ireland and Luxembourg have significant expertise advising clients in relation to these EU law developments. We are involved in policy discussions with government organisations and EU bodies through involvement in industry associations and have particular insight into these developments.

Structured finance and securitization
Property acquisition structuring and taxation
Aviation and asset finance and leasing
Corporate reorganization
Foreign direct investment
Intellectual Property
Investment funds
