“When I was choosing what to do after my Abitur I quickly decided to train as a tax consultant assistant, as this is a demanding profession with daily challenges. ... read moreMy daily work includes consulting clients, taking care of finance and personnel accounting as well as business tax declarations. The training is accompanied by vocational school, which covers the theoretical parts of economics, taxation and accounting. The various education possibilities available after the training has been completed allow to broaden certain areas either in taxation or accounting. For example studying or further training as a certified accountant or advanced tax specialist accountant assistant.

I enjoy my job, as it is varied, interesting and always changing. My responsibilities are so diverse that I get to know different sectors as well as the entire range of services we offer our clients.
