Cross-border cpa/Steuerberater

6 posts in this topic

am looking for a Steuerberater/CPA that is well-versed in preparing German and American tax-returns. We live in the Bamberg area, but do not necessarily require someone from this area. Who has recommendations?

Check your local "Steuerberaterkammer"  website for a "Fachberater für internationales Steuerrecht" specialising in the US.

Outside of using one of the big global accounting firms, we found it very difficult to find a firm that can handle both the US and German taxes. Last year we ended up using one of the big firms and were really disappointed with the level of service we received.  We thought it would be more simple to use a single firm, but found that each country advisor only knew their part. We had to constantly go back and forth between them asking questions. (This was our first year filing taxes in Germany, so may have been more complicated based on our learning curve as well)

 

For 2020, we are going to do as others suggest, and found a German Steuerberaterin here and will use our prior CPA in the US. They have agreed to connect with each other during the preparation of our filings to make sure we have a holistic tax view.

Hi, for the german one, you can buy a software online and do it yourself, of course you need to talk german and read a lot of information related to the topic, but at the end is much cheaper. I can recommend you the software I have been using in the last 4 years.

 

Best regards
