Company history

We are a tax advisory firm located in Berlin and have been advising enterprises in all kinds of legal matters for more than twenty years. Next to classic tax and legal advice we also focus on creative tax advice and international tax law. Our network includes partners from Germany, the UK, Ireland and the USA. Our clients’ trust is based on our solution orientated commitment with which we support you in planning your enterprise and optimising the business.

Our tax firm has assumed a clear position with its 25 employees (and three tax advisors and one lawyer) and international focus. Even if many tasks are carried out digitally the orientation of our tax firm remains personal and keeps its “familiar touch”. This is important to us.

The tax firm, which started up in a backyard office in what was then the new eastern part of the city, has developed over 25 years in and with the Prenzlauer Berg area into an important address in the Berlin tax advisor directory. In particular, as one of the few service providers who also offer international tax advice next to the classic core business, the tax firm has made a name for itself outside of the city boundaries. We are listed on the New York chamber of commerce and our professionals are regularly invited to hold lectures there in order to give an understanding of German tax law to potential investors and entrepreneurs. Clients come from, among others, the USA, Ireland, Spain, Italy, England, Dubai and Lebanon.

Our offices are also designed in a way which reflects our convictions. Clear lines, warm colours and forms, down-to-earth – our office floor presents itself in the historical old building of the former “Groterjan” brewery villa in a side street of the Schönhauser Allee. Close enough to Berlin’s centre to be a part of things, far enough away, however, to be able assess the trends and movements of the capital from a necessary distance.
