Management-Entscheidungen in deutsch-chinesischen Joint by Siamak Mohtachemi

By Siamak Mohtachemi

Seit China 1978 seine Märkte für viele ausländische Unternehmen geöffnet und sich zu einem zentralen Wachstumsmarkt im asiatischen Raum entwickelt hat, ist dort ein regelrechter Wirtschaftsboom zu beobachten. Viele deutsche Unternehmen wählen dabei, um sich auf dem chinesischen Markt zu etablieren, die Kooperationsform "Joint Venture". Für den Erfolg solch deutsch-chinesischer Joint Ventures spielen neben den konjunkturellen und rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen die soziokulturellen Faktoren für die Interaktionen des Managements mit dem chinesischen Umfeld, insbesondere die Einstellungen und Verhaltensweisen der chinesischen Kooperationspartner, eine entscheidende Rolle. 

Dabei zeigt sich immer häufiger, dass die kulturellen Differenzen speziell vor und während den Verhandlungsgesprächen zu interkulturellen Managementproblemen führen. Solche Probleme tragen nicht selten sogar zum Scheitern von three way partnership Beziehungen bei, so dass der Bereich "Interkulturelles administration" zunehmend in den Blickpunkt westlicher Unternehmen rückt. Dabei stellt sich für westliche Unternehmer immer häufiger die Frage, welche Kenntnisse und Charaktereigenschaften ihre Auslandsmitarbeiter haben müssen und welche Möglichkeiten bestehen, sich solche Kompetenzen anzueignen.

Das Doppelbesteuerungsabkommen Deutschland-Schweiz (German by Rüdiger Bock

By Rüdiger Bock

Das Abkommen zur Vermeidung der Doppelbesteuerungsabkommen auf dem Gebiet des Einkommens und des Vermögens zwischen Deutschland und der Schweiz weist im internationalen Vergleich einige Besonderheiten auf. Um steuerlich motivierte Wegzüge aus Deutschland in die Schweiz zu verhindern, sieht das Abkommen beispielsweise vor, dass die Vermeidung der doppelten Besteuerung im Verhältnis zu Deutschland unterbleibt, wenn der Steuerpflichtige in der Schweiz eine Vorzugsbesteuerung wählt, wie dies bei der pauschalen Besteuerung nach dem Aufwand der Fall ist. Selbst ohne diese Vorzugsbesteuerung sind nach einem Wegzug in die Schweiz die aus deutschen Quellen stammenden Einkünfte für einen Übergangszeitraum von fünf Jahren nach dem Wegzugsjahr weiterhin in Deutschland steuerpflichtig, auch wenn das Abkommen die jeweilige Einkunftsart eigentlich der Schweiz als Ansässigkeitsstaat zur Besteuerung zuweisen würde. Behält der Steuerpflichtige noch eine Wohnung in Deutschland, so kann dies bei regelmässiger Nutzung dazu führen, dass er niemals in den Genuss der Freistellung seiner Einkünfte von der deutschen Steuer gelangt, auch wenn sich sein Lebensmittelpunkt in der Schweiz befindet - lediglich spezifische Einkünfte aus der Schweiz bleiben hiervon ausgeklammert. Mit dem im Jahr 2002 in Kraft getretenen Freizügigkeitsabkommen zwischen der EG und der Schweiz wurde eine Niederlassungsfreiheit vereinbart, die sich weitestgehend an die Regelungen des EG-Vertrags anlehnt und zumindest teilweise die bisher ergangene Rechtsprechung des Europäischen Gerichtshofs für anwendbar erklärt. Der Vertrag enthält allerdings auch eine Klausel, wonach Maßnahmen zur Vermeidung der Steuerflucht erlaubt sind. Der Autor untersucht, in wie weit die Niederlassungsfreiheit den besonderen Restrikionen des DBA entgegensteht und betrachtet diesbezüglich auch einige Regelungen des deutschen Außensteuergesetzes. Das im Jahr 2004 in Kraft getretene Zinsbesteuerungsabkommen enthält einige Sonderregelungen für Zinsen und Dividenden. Hier herrschen noch einige Unklarheiten in Bezug auf die Auslegung des Abkommens. Es zeigt sich, dass die praktischen Auswirkungen dieses Abkommens hinter den Erwartungen der EG zurück blieben.
