FACT Listed not Once but Twice as One of the Top German Firms in Tax Advisory and Auditing
Two well-received German publications have both listed FACT as one of the top German tax advisory firms.
GGI member firm FACT, based in Kassel, Germany, is honoured and excited to have been named for the third consecutive year as one of the top German tax advisory and auditing firms. On behalf of Handelsblatt, a German daily newspaper, the survey was carried out by S.W.I. Finance. Out of 4,189 participating accountants and 802 participating auditors, 609 tax advisory and 106 audit firms were included in the list of Germany’s top firms. FACT is proud to be named as one of the best tax advisory firms and as well as one of the best auditing firms. The complete article (in German) may be found at Handelsblatt Test: Beste Steuerberater und Wirtschaftsprüfer 2020.
“Since its foundation in 2007, FACT has experienced continuous growth and has become a more and more important player amongst Germany’s tax advisory firms. This recognition puts us in a class with the very best consulting firms in the area of auditing, tax consulting and business administration in Germany. It is a great tribute to all who work here and contribute every day,” says partner Bernhard Schwechel, upon receiving the news. “We will continue our efforts to further strengthen our position and deliver excellent client services.”
FACT’s expertise is based on interdisciplinary cooperation on the subjects of tax, audit and law: effectively they serve as a “onestop- shop”. They are well-known as a forward-thinking advisory firm with excellent client service. Each client is assigned two contact persons: at least one partner and one qualified employee, fully proficient with the clients’ circumstances. Strong personal contact with their clients, and prompt individual and flexible service, are taken for granted by all FACT employees. “We believe these efforts have also led to our firm being named one of Handelsblatt and FOCUS-SPEZIAL’s 2020 top tax advisory firms in Germany for the third consecutive year”, said Bernhard Schwechel.
FOCUS-SPEZIAL, a German news magazine, jointly with Statista, conducts this annual survey of top tax advisory firms, and independently identifies the top tax advisory firms in Germany. The article was
published in the issue 15/2020. Particularly in the categories of auditing, international tax law and advisory and taxation of corporate reorganisation, FACT showed outstanding results.
