Without the obligation to be bound to a particular network, we find the appropriate and qualified tax consultant in the country of your foreign commitment. We regularly use here the recommendations of the German Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA) as well as our many years of personal contacts.
In general, we have the great advantage that we are not obliged to use any particular international network which offers in most cases a very variable service quality depending on the individual tax consultant and the country of investment. However, these networks, even from the largest consulting companies, can be used at any time if required. In addition, we have many years of established contacts with consultants in important foreign countries.
Even in far-away countries in Asia and Africa, where German investments are not the daily norm, we are active as advisors and have the relevant contacts, especially for construction and assembly activities.
In general, we use the recommendations of the German Engineering Federation registered association (VDMA) to select the best foreign consultant. Independently of any particular network, VDMA has individual recommendations for almost every country worldwide that meet the high demands of German engineering companies.
