For many standard services, such as financial and investment accounting, determining taxable profit, preparing annual financial statements and tax returns, fees are charged according to the Official Fee Schedule for Certified Tax Advisers (Steuerberatervergütungsverordnung – StBVV) based on the amount of revenue, net assets, income, etc. realised by you (amount at issue). The StBVV stipulates a fee in relation to the amount at issue, which the tax adviser may adjust based on the level of difficulty, the effort involved and the risk entailed.
This method of calculating fees lacks a certain transparency for clients. We would therefore be pleased to meet with you to discuss our fee estimate in detail.
