Tax consultant recognize foreign professional qualification

Service Description

You are a citizen of a member state of the European Union (EU) or a contracting state of the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, have acquired an educational qualification outside Germany that entitles you to provide independent assistance in tax matters and would like to work as a tax consultant in Germany?

The profession of tax consultant is regulated in Germany. This means that taking up or practicing this profession is bound by state regulations to the possession of certain qualifications.

Assuming that you are professionally qualified, the first step is to take the aptitude test to become a tax consultant (abbreviated tax consultant examination) before an examination board at the highest tax authority of the federal state in which you want to start working. With the successfully passed aptitude test you acquire the same rights as with the successfully passed tax consultant examination.

The aptitude test is a subform of the tax consultant examination. If both the requirements for admission to the tax consultant examination and the requirements for admission to the qualifying examination are met, the applicant is free to choose which form of examination he/she applies for.

If you are unsure whether you meet the requirements for admission to the qualifying examination, you can obtain binding information from the relevant Chamber of Tax Consultants upon request.
