Preface

Being into the international tax business for a couple of years, I always found it extremely difficult to deal with cross border cases without having an opinion of the tax consequences in other foreign jurisdictions.

Often it was not just to know the foreign tax law - sometimes difficult enough to understand - but to find information into the right language and the right format.

The intention of this short compendium is to provide the international tax expert community respectively (tax) managers dealing with international (partnership) cases with a first familiarization with the concept of foreign company classification for German tax purposes based on a so called ‘analogy comparison’ (Typenvergleich). For this purpose the Bundesfinanzhof decision of 20 August 2008 - regarding the classification of an US-LLC - shall serve as an example and is thus translated and commented in this sense.
