When you should contact me?

  • You need a German tax return and need someone, who will provide you with a service in a down-to-earth manner.
  • Your employer has provided you with tax advisory service in the past. Now you are responsible for your German tax return by yourself.
  • You moved to Germany and you have no clue about German tax (and this is not an area that particularly interests you).


What can I do for you?

  • Tax return preparation
  • Advise in respect of wage tax classes or wage tax reliefs
  • Advise how to receive German child subsidy (Kindergeld)
  • Communication with German fiscal authorities, other German authorities or with the payroll/HR departement of your company


How will I do this?

  • After a meeting to discuss your needs and the circumstances of your personal situation you will provide me with the necessary information and documents based on a questionnaire/checklist/our discussion.
  • I will prepare the tax return and provide you with a draft version. You can get yourself familiar with the document, ask any question or require any corrections. Your approval assumed the return will be filed electronically with the fiscal authorities.
  • Please note: I might carry out the work together with the ETL group office ADVITAX Berlin (Mauerstrasse 86-88, 10117 Berlin-Mitte).
  • If you wish, any questions/letters from fiscal authorities will be directed to me in the first place. Also, I will receive the assessments and will review them. We will discuss the results and I will advise you in case the assessment deviates from the filed return.


What will you pay?

I will base my fees on the official fee tables for German tax advisors (Vergütungsverordnung für Steuerberater, Steuerbevollmächtigte und Steuerberatungsgesellschaften (Steuerberatervergütungsverordnung - StBVV) vom 11. Dezember 2012).

The actual fee is based on the complexity of the filed return and the total of the taxable income.


Preparation of the tax return for an employee with 120,000 gross income, no expenses and no other income; including the review of the first assessment

Fee total: round 250 Euro
