Tax Consultant Potsdam and Berlin: Start-Ups and company founders
Christine Oppe, Photographer
"In August 2013 I took the leap into self-employment. With my photography I capture living moments in the life of families and children. When it comes to newborns, I’m particularly touched by the tenderness, the magic of the first days. When I started up my company, I searched on the internet under “start-up consultants” and came upon the accounting firm Knappworst. Now I’m getting bigger and bigger and have assigned more and more tasks to the firm. My tax consultant gives me the space to focus on my strengths and interests. I can always ask him what the tax implications are with regard to my business decisions. For me this means both relief and security."
Eve Büchner, refund.me GmbH
“When you build up an international company such as refund.me, it also means that everyone has to pull together. And that’s exactly what I like about the accounting firm Knappworst: Everyone there shares our excitement and understands something about international business. That’s why I changed to Thomas Knappworst because in him I have a solid contact, who advises me on strategies and also at times dissuades me from doing something. I have the perfect symbiotic relationship with the tax consultant responsible for me: We confer and perfectly complement each other, she is precise down to the last detail and I can always rely on her.”
Matthias Ernst, Managing Director XLETIX GmbH
"We are one of the top providers of obstacle courses in Germany and Austria. Previously, I worked as a corporate consultant and then as the in-house managing director of another startup. We have been with the Knappworst firm since XLETIX was founded, in 2013. We met Mr. Knappworst in person at a trade fair. The best thing about working with a tax advisor is that it frees you from having to deal with necessary evils – that’s absolutely essential. If it weren’t for the firm, the KISTAM launch would have pushed me over the edge. We have all our financial and payroll accounting handled by the tax advisor. For certain strategic decisions, we discuss the concrete financial consequences together. Take expanding into neighboring EU countries, for example – what that means for us in terms of tax laws. I honestly can’t say whether a tax advisor would also be a good fit as a business coach. You’d have to give it a try; I wouldn’t have perceived it that way directly at first. I’ll take a closer look at Mr. Knappworst in response…"
Carsten Petersen, Orthopaedic Practice at Nauener Tor
“Without a tax consultant I would have all the accounting work to do with wages etc. on my plate. For this reason alone, the accounting firm is very important in my professional routine as practice owner. In 2012 I went into business for myself and have been working with the firm Knappworst since then. Now it’s increasingly about developing strategies. That’s very complex, so I value the good service and especially the short distance to travel due to their proximity – in other words my “local tax consultant”.
