Global tax advisory group Taxand has expanded its Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) presence with a new office in Austria.
Taxand Austria provides multi-disciplinary tax and legal services to multinationals and local clients across industry sectors including banking, private equity, production, real estate and tourism.
The expansion follows an increasing number of Austrian companies investing in CEE countries and an increase in CEE companies basing their operations in Vienna.
Taxand chairman Frédéric Donnedieu de Vabres said that as Austria develops as a hub for multinational companies operating in CEE, there is clearly client demand for independent cross-border tax advice.
The Austria office is Taxand’s second new CEE office this year, following the opening of an office in Hungary.
Taxand has 300 tax partners and 2,000 tax advisers in 48 countries.
