The integration of CONTAX into GGI is extremely important for us and our clients, as it allows us an international professional interaction on a very high quality level.

Our experts in accounting, audit and international tax law within CONTAX assist both Austrian companies on their way into foreign markets and also foreign entities in their activities in Austria.
