I am a Certified Tax Advisor ("Steuerberater") for Germany. I received a Bachelor in Finance (Tax) and a Master of International Taxation (University of Hamburg). I have my office in Hamburg with over 30 years practical experience as tax expert in different positions with the tax authorities, in industry and in private practice.
As an accredited member of the Chamber of German Tax Advisors in Hamburg (Steuerberaterkammer Hamburg) and a member of the German Association of Tax Advisors, I am a part-time tax counsel for an international company in Hamburg and freelance tax advisor in private practice since 2008. I am also the managing director and owner of the tax advisory boutique KAPHORN Steuerberatungsgesellschaft UG.
I can also advise your business. You can expect an experienced tax consultant, who is fighting for your rights.
Beside general tax advice for Germany (bookkeeping, financial statements, tax returns, for cooperation's and partnerships) I focused in recent years especially also in the taxation of international traffic and taxation of international transactions (inter alia dispute settlement, tax treaty cases, mutual agreements procedures, secondments).
Private clients know me for my expertise in the taxation of flight and ship crews (income tax returns); I am also the author of a regular booklet of that matter. However, we also look after clients from all other sectors, such as small to medium size entrepreneurs and companies. If you are English speaking or are about to invest in the German markets, you are invited to approach me for support.
I am also happy to support other tax consultant colleagues in processing their (international) cases, be it in individual cases or as part of an ongoing cooperation. If you are a foreign based tax consultant with clients/ transactions in Germany you are invited to approach me if you require tax support with German tax matters.
This is our promise: I personally take care of every case!
