In cooperation with the marketing institute Statista GmbH, FOCUS-SPEZIAL is publishing a list of Germany’s top tax advisory firms for the sixth time in a row this year, with Bielefeld-based auditing and tax advisory company HLB Stückmann also included for the sixth time. HLB Stückmann again ranks as one of the top tax advisory firms in 2019, honoured in two categories, namely “Representation and Enforcement against Financial Authorities, Review of Administrative Acts” and “Auditing”.
Every year on behalf of FOCUS, the Hamburg-based institute Statista conducts a survey to compile a Germany-wide ranking of tax and corporate law offices, which covers 19 work areas of auditing and tax consultancy and ten sectors, with the objective of bestowing this award. The selection is based primarily on recommendations made by colleagues (outside their own firm) from the respective specialist area. An additional evaluation criterion includes the formal additional qualifications of the firm's members of staff. All of the details are available in the “tax advisors” edition of FOCUS-SPEZIAL dated 5 March 2019.
