How to avoid just firefighting in your role as head of taxes:
Develop and implement a flexible national and international tax strategy.
Simultaneously manage the three time zones: history (tax audit), current demands through operative business changes, and early adoption of new tax regulations.
Realize a high efficiency in your day to day work by means of digitalization and a constant proficiency of your staff.
Permanently control the tax compliance of your company and if required support colleagues, who are not tax experts.
Constantly coordinate with the managing director, the advisory or supervisory board, a family office and other relevant functions.
Establish a strong technical network through tax working groups.
