Criminal Tax Law

Criminal tax law has grown in significance over the past few years – both in regards to the nature and the quantity of cases. This is hardly surprising given that tax law has now become one of the most complicated and fluctuating areas of law. Tax laws change almost daily, and so do the individual’s disclosure obligations.

Ever since the 1990s, when several banks were searched and account documents seized, authorities have visibly increased their efforts to trace and prosecute tax evaders.

At Ufer Knauer Rechtsanwälte we offer our clients comprehensive advice and defence in all stages of criminal tax proceedings, the initiation of which often comes as a complete surprise to the client and is accompanied possibly by coercive measures such as the search of residential and business premises and the confiscation of objects and documents as evidence.
