Businesses - Tax consulting and Auditing for family businesses and medium-sized companies

Family businesses, medium-sized companies, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), international companies, start-ups

Large, small and regionally rooted family businesses make up and strengthen Germany's economic structure.

91 percent* of all companies in Germany are family businesses. Their special feature is their long-term orientation and focus on sustainable growth, as the owner families often think and act over generations. This enables family businesses to make long-term investments and drive innovations that form the basis for their success in the future. 

The term Mittelstand generally refers to small and medium-sized enterprises that do not exceed certain thresholds in terms of sales, employees or total assets.

Small and medium-sized enterprises play a decisive role in shaping Germany's economic and social development. Many SMEs operate in niche markets and have specialised in certain products or services. Furthermore, SMEs are an important driver of Germany's export economy, as many SMEs operate internationally.



We know the challenges that family businesses and small and medium-sized enterprises go through in the phases of their corporate development. We advise with heart and mind - some of our clients already span several generations. In doing so, we carefully weigh the needs of all parties involved in order to strengthen the foundations of the companies in the long term for future generations.
