As experienced tax advisors, auditors and business consultants, we provide our services to medium-sized enterprises in a range of sectors throughout the Berlin and Brandenburg regions. In addition, we maintain good relationships with banks and other funders.
Many of our clients, for whom we have generally acted for several years, form part of the Mittelstand – the medium-sized enterprises that are known as Germany’s economic powerhouse. The term Mittelstand applies to small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that can be described as follows:
* Under the quantities definition of the IfM (the Bonn-based Institute for Mittelstand Research), small enterprises are those that employ fewer than ten people and have an annual turnover below one million euro.
