    The basis for making the right entrepreneurial decisions is an operational accounting system that works – for your own information as well as that of the external recipients of your financial statements. We offer you the complete service package.

    The essential components are:

    • Closing of accounts according to the German Commercial Code
    • Financial reporting according to IFRS
    • Business analysis (reporting)
    • Financial Accounting
    • Payroll accounting
  • Audit

    Only verified data and documents provide a reliable basis for business decisions. Without losing sight of your consultation, we offer comprehensive auditing services:

    • Statutory audits
    • Voluntary audits
    • Trusteeship
  • Mid-Tier

    As a mid-tier company, you have your own finance department with in-house specialists. For all associated tasks that you do not handle yourself, you are looking for a consultant with a profound understanding of your business and professional challenges.

    The perfect consultant really understands your concerns and will find the ideal solution with you. The highest qualifications and experience in accounting and tax law are just as much a prerequisite as a smooth service in tax returns, annual audits and other professional activities. You use Pape & Co. as an extended workbench for your professional questions and as an outsourcing partner.

  • SME / Outsourcing

    We offer the complete range of professional services in the field of accounting and taxes. We conduct financial and payroll accounting as well as the preparation of sophisticated reports or annual financial statements.

    As an efficient outsourcing partner, our services extend to the domiciliation of companies with postal services and payment transactions – just as you wish.

    We are therefore the ideal partner for you as a sophisticated small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) or as a group of companies with many small units such as property companies.

  • Startups / Growth

    As a start-up, you will receive our special attention.

    We are involved in the scene in a variety of ways and see ourselves as a high-quality sparring partner for the development of your company, from “bootstrappers” via investor-financed start-ups to dynamic growth companies with or without exit. You can rely on our experience and our feel for how successful start-ups or growth companies are managed and administered.

  • Germany Inbound

    As a foreign company, you are looking for a strong and competent partner who will provide you with comprehensive support in Germany. Whether it is simply a matter of VAT registration or the full support of a domestic subsidiary, we can help you – just as we do for our other clients from all over the world. We take care of your concerns and communicate seamlessly, both with your German units and with your company headquarters.

    Our specialist inbound team typically takes care of tax, accounting, back office services, domiciliation, employee secondment and the structuring of your German investment.

  • Investor

    As an investor – whether a private investor, family office or private equity company – you want to focus entirely on your business activities.

    This is why you transfer accounting and taxes to specialists. Your advisor must be available and confidential, have entrepreneurial thinking and extensive experience in the investment business, as well as a deep understanding of the legal context. Not to forget the ability to make complex issues transparent and the willingness to make decisions and give advice.

    It goes without saying that the highest level of competence, a smooth and inexpensive service in accounting, due diligence or tax returns, as well as a sound understanding of risk are a must. We bring all this with us.

When we are asked who our typical clients are, we find that we get along best with people who think entrepreneurially. Because together it’ s all about getting things done, achieving goals in a direct way and realizing efficient solutions and processes that inspire rather than indulging vanity. That is why our clients include companies – from start-ups to corporations – as well as families with assets to manage or people who are looking for a particularly committed tax consultant.
