Nikos Siakantaris

Partner

Nikos participates in global projects for assessing Greek tax implications of various international transactions. He mainly advises on corporate and individual taxation issues, VAT, double tax treaties and international taxation planning.

He has significant experience in the interpretation of tax legislation (including incentive legislation), company law, double tax treaties and advising on obligations and tax issues arising therefrom. Nikos also specializes in the provision of advisory, strategic-planning, transaction-related and immovable property-related professional services to clients. Such roles include specialization in international transactions and involve examination of possible indirect (VAT) tax implications in relation to a specific tax structure and supervision and monitoring during the implementation stage.

Nikos also has extensive experience in taxation planning structures including issues such as the best way to structure the affairs and transaction flows of a business so that taxes are minimized. In addition, he provides advice on issues such as business restructuring, use of tax losses, tax consequences from possible mergers and acquisitions as well as taxation treatment of profits and dividends.

He also has experience in the set up of foreign subsidiaries/branches, real estate issues, international tax implications in cross border transactions, transfer pricing issues and anti-avoidance legislation. Nikos has participated on various tax reviews received by local and international tax companies either by supporting the companies during the reviews or by providing tax diagnostic reviews in order to highlight significant potential tax exposures.

Prior to joining the firm, Nikos served as a tax consultant in the tax department of KPMG in Greece, as well as a Eastern Europe tax manager for Huawei Technologies Investment and Co, Ltd responsible for the tax planning and the corporate set up of the Huawei Group in the Eastern Europe jurisdiction.
