Business plan, finding the legal form, financing and tax advice.

Why does tax advice with a focus on business start-ups make sense?

It is not for nothing that tax law speaks of “entrepreneurial risk”. Setting up a new company always involves a (financial) risk, which you can minimize by putting your company on a stable footing straight away.

It all starts with a well-founded and realistic business plan, which not only gives you a good forecast of your financial resources, but also serves as a template for financial institutions for possible financing.

As a young company in particular, it is important to avoid unnecessary costs. Thanks to increasing digitization, you can take care of your bookkeeping and VAT returns yourself at low cost. As soon as your company grows, and with it your financial resources, we will be happy to gradually take over the bookkeeping tasks or help with the recruitment of suitable staff.

We at Steuerberatung Schopp grow with you and you with us. We optimize tax advice for you when setting up a business.

Cooperation between founders and tax consultants

Would you like to work with us? Here is a summary of how such cooperation usually works.


Your inquiry and the first meeting

Contact us quickly and easily by phone or email and let us know what you need. As a digital tax consultant for start-ups, we can support you regardless of your location. This means you don’t have to make an extra trip. We are digitally available for you, no matter where you are.


From the business plan to financing and tax returns

We are your one-stop store. Because we specialize in tax advice for start-ups, we can offer you the right solutions for every single step towards a successful business. We understand that financial resources are initially limited when starting a business. That’s why we not only support you in setting up digital accounting so that you can manage your figures yourself, but also have access to an extensive network of partners in the financial sector. Together we will find optimal financing options.


Balance sheets, tax returns and annual financial statements

Whether you are just starting out or have already got the ball rolling, we can provide you with flexible support at any time. We determine your profit by means of a balance sheet or income statement and are also happy to take care of your tax returns (for natural persons, partnerships and corporations). We then have the opportunity to review and refine the systems at the end of the year. As your company grows, we will be happy to gradually take over the bookkeeping tasks – or help with the recruitment of suitable staff.

All-round support with tax returns for start-ups

Every business start-up starts with a good idea, wishes and ambitious goals. But as a founder, you are initially faced with what feels like a wall of question marks. Tax law issues in particular can cause an extra headache. That’s why we at Steuerberatung Schopp have specialized in supporting founders. Our know-how turns every stumbling block into an opportunity and every doubt into a solution. With us, you have more than just a tax consultant at your side. We see ourselves as part of your company and become your personal finance department.

Finding the right legal form

Before you get started, you need to find the right legal form. There is no one-size-fits-all solution. There is a wide range of legal forms to choose from in Germany: GmbH, UG, sole proprietorship or partnership. Each form has its advantages and disadvantages. Contact us to find the best solution for you. We will advise you in detail on the options and help you to find the optimum solution for your company.

Finances and balance sheets at a glance

Finances are probably the biggest challenge for any founder. Before the first revenues are generated, a lot of investments have to be made. And before you overreach yourself and inadvertently create a financial pitfall for the young company, we will help you to determine realistic figures and thus put the company on a stable foundation. Thanks to our partners at the banks, we are also able to support you with financing. Depending on your business goals and financial possibilities, you can count on our customized and affordable support.

Digital tools for cost savings

We understand that as a founder you need flexible solutions. As experts in digital tax solutions for start-ups, we can recommend user-friendly and easy-to-use programs that make it child's play for you to do your bookkeeping yourself - especially at the beginning. We present various applications for you to choose from. Our experience has shown us which digital accounting programs are ideal for beginners. As your company grows and your accounting becomes more complex, we support you more and more - always exactly as it is right for you and your business.

Complex control systems made simple

In Germany, entrepreneurs have to submit different tax returns depending on the type of business and their sources of income. Taxes are a complex and constantly changing topic. Incorrect completion can have a significant negative impact on your company's financial well-being and can also lead to financial penalties and even legal problems. Whether income tax returns (for individuals), sales tax returns (VAT), trade tax returns or corporation tax returns (for corporations such as GmbHs) - depending on the legal form of your company, we will take care of your tax returns in order to minimize your tax burden and maximize your income.
