Service and Consulting Concept
Our services and, most importantly, our consulting concept, are based on the individual needs of specific clients and we combine these solutions with the wealth of experiences in the fields of tax and business consulting we have acquired over many years in different industries and countries. We offer in particular medium-sized businesses a level of personal and comprehensive support, which includes, in certain cases, even the management of entire commercial departments. What you can expect from us is competent advice even in complex matters, group and company structures as well as difficult business challenges – both, in our home market and internationally. Our motto “Consulting Services That Make A Difference” emphasizes our service vision: We aim to provide advice that supports our clients and not just accompany them through the traditional compliance standards.
Besides handling classic tax consulting services – especially in the disciplines of real estate consulting, transactions advice and restructuring consulting – we offer consulting services to foreign companies in individuals who engage in business activities in Germany (inbound consulting).
Consultia Steuerberatungsgesellschaft advisors will not only assist you with tax legislation related matters, but will additionally also focus on business and financial consulting and, in partnership with various attorneys and notary publics, will advise you in civil law matters that have taxation effects.
Moreover, in the field of cross-border real estate financing, the firm also works for international financial institutions in conjunction with due diligence investigations, cost effectiveness analyses and performs other audits.
Consultia employs European sales tax experts and professionals specializing in gift and estate tax matters.
We have comprehensive experience in bankruptcy project consulting, which is part of our restructuring consultancy portfolio and has been acquired over many years of practice in the field.
