Most people regard taxes as boring and unattractive. As tax law normally presents itself as complicated and not transparent, this notion is understandable. Therefore it is even more important not to lose sight of the big picture, to follow a clear strategy, and use a language which people who are not tax experts can easily understand.
This is exactly my approach: A thorough analysis of the tax topic stands at the beginning, before different solution options are developed. When choosing an option not only the tax aspects are taken into account, but also short- and midterm connected economic effects are considered. The recommendation will be as short and concise as possible. This increases transparency and supports a quick decision.
If you wonder why this approach comes easily to me, a short glimpse of my professional career might help:
A varied range of assignments at PwC in tax consulting, business consulting and audit as partner, German certified tax advisor and German certified public accountant in Germany as well as abroad. Vice president of the tax function of a large German multinational enterprise globally responsible for taxes and for the connection to the family office as well as head of some special projects.
Interesting assignment as member of an arbitration board in an international arbitration proceeding, member of the EU Joint Transfer Pricing Forum, Business Commentator of the Working Party 6 of the OECD, member of the International Fiscal Association.
Court-appointed expert for economic topics.
