Heikki Vesikansa and Matleena Pälve’s Article in Edilex
Head of Hannes Snellman’s Tax Practice, Partner Heikki Vesikansa and Senior Associate Matleena Pälve have written an article entitled “The Concept of Company Loan and Transfer Tax Levied on Such Company Loans in Finnish Real Estate Company Transactions”. The article addresses the much debated updates to the Finnish Transfer Tax Act in 2013, which have prompted a significant amount of tax litigation over the past few years on the issue of whether or not so-called company loans will be captured in the share transfer tax base in Finnish real estate company transactions.
