It can take many forms and it is different from tax evasion, which is the illegal form of escaping payment.

Our lawyers in Luxembourg can help you draw up an effective tax plan for minimizing tax liabilities.
 

Tax minimization strategies in Luxembourg

 
Investors in Luxembourg can arrange their investments and business activities for the purpose of reducing the amount of taxes paid. A common tax minimization strategy is to bring forward the tax deductions into the current financial year. This can be applied to corporate gifts for clients, employees in Luxembourg or business partners. It can apply to the purchase of necessary office supplies and even the renovation of the office space and/or the property in Luxembourg used as the companys' headquarters. 
 
Charitable donation can also be used to lower the amount of taxes due. Deductions apply for different types of donations. The most common type of donation and the easiest to quantify is the donation in cash. However, companies can also make donations in tangible and intangible assets. Our Luxembourg lawyers can advise you regarding the different types of donations and the deductible and non-deductible types.
 
Contributions to retirement plans are also a way to minimize the tax contributions. If possible, taxpayers in Luxembourg can consider maximizing their retirement plan contribution.
