Costs

We will be happy to help clarify which kind of our services are useful to you in a preliminary free discussion. It is important for us to make sure our fees are transparent (which, admittedly is not always easy due to the compensation regulations). Therefore, take a look at the statement calculations in the examples. If you have any questions, call or email us and we will prepare a quotation for you.

Individual and transparent fees

For an initial consultation the tax consultants charging regulation quotes a fee of up to €180 plus expenditures and VAT.

As part of the ongoing consultation, e.g. in the preparation of your tax returns and financial statements and accounting practices, the fee is based on the mid-tenth sets of the tax consultant regulation of charges. Ultimately, it is the object value at issue and the expenses incurred which determine the final price.
