We are pleased that you are interested in our business. We are looking forward to your appointment or visit in our office. Our office is accessible via tram lines 1 and 7; the stop is Lichtenfelsgasse/Kunstuniversität or Merangasse. Parking spaces are available in the public short stay zone.
If you wish, we would also be happy to visit you.

We manage your accounts for you on an ongoing basis, together with monthly business analyses and VAT returns as well as additional statistical assessments that may be necessary. In the course of digitisation, we have already implemented paperless accounting, and will gladly support clients in the transition process. Furthermore, it is possible for you to prepare your accounts on our servers and have us put together the checks and assessments. You can download a cash book here.

For us, the monthly payroll includes, among other things, the management of payroll accounts, correspondence with tax authorities, preparation and submission of annual salary statements and, if requested, the ongoing administration of holiday and credit hours as well as the calculation of provisions. Alongside putting together the monthly payroll for employees, we are at your disposal for special requests concerning payroll tax, social and work laws as well as for support in the submission of audits. We are also at your disposal as a pure data processing centre. You can download a travel claims form and a personnel registration sheet here.

We prepare annual financial statements in terms of calculating profit, income and expenditure as well as operating assets comparisons or balancing. The latter can be done according to national employment law as well as according to international accounting regulations, such as, for example, IFRS.

As we calculate a range of responsibilities for our clients, such as VAT, wage levies, advance payments etc. for the tax authorities, we offer to arrange subsequent payments if the relevant banking authorisation exists.

The high level of complexity of Austrian tax law and ongoing changes made by legislators and jurisprudence represent a great challenge for businesses and tax advisors. Our task is to stay on top of things and find the best possible tax structure. Naturally, tax advice at the national level is our main area of expertise, but we are also in a position to offer international tax advice, in particular by consulting colleagues from our international network IPG, in which tax advisors, auditors, lawyers and notaries from all over the world are represented.

The type of tax return required for taxpayers depends on their individual situation. We make sure that all necessary tax returns are submitted completely and correctly and delivered to the tax authorities on time.

The employment and social security law is a complex and quickly changing area that demands a high level of specialised knowledge. In this case, we collaborate with social security organisations.

This includes communication with tax authorities in all matters, identification of possible remedy requirements, their preparing and filing, as well as representation in criminal tax proceedings and the filing of voluntary declarations.

Apart from the ongoing advice, we support our clients in founding a business with regards to all possible demands that might arise from it, such as the choice of legal form, business plan etc. Furthermore, we offer support in the termination of business activities with regards to business handovers including all subjects relating to succession as well as in the termination of the business.

The most frequent reorganisations are incorporations and mergers. However, we also advise you comprehensively in cases of conversions from corporations to private companies and individual companies, de-mergers, mergers into private companies and division of assets.

We advise in all matters of private foundations. From the character of the founder to the dedication of assets, the structure of the foundation, the beneficiaries, the accounting or the audit to the eventual withdrawal.
