Tax advice for the self-employed and tradespeople

We are your new CFO for all tax-related transactions.

Why does tax advice with a focus on the self-employed and tradespeople make sense?

Self-employed – it’s not for nothing that it’s made up of the two words “self” and “constantly” – everyone knows that self-employed people and tradespeople work hard and a lot. Do you still have the time and leisure to deal with the constantly changing German tax laws? Probably not!

This is where we come in. As tax consultants for entrepreneurs, freelancers and the self-employed, we specialize in German tax law and its pitfalls. We know what is important and therefore have your back. So you can concentrate on your work and we take care of everything else.

Regardless of whether you are a service provider, retailer or craftsman: Satisfied customers are a must. To be able to offer a top service, your head must be clear, free from financial worries and the inconveniences of German tax law. Far removed from the complicated tax jargon, we can assist you with bookkeeping, tax registration, payroll accounting, tax returns and at the end of the year we determine your profit by means of a balance sheet or a surplus income statement. We take on all the tasks that are complex and take up your time. So each of us does what we do best. A deal?

6 reasons for working with Steuerberatung Schopp as a self-employed person or trader


German tax law is complex and changeable. We know our way around the tax jungle and can advise you on how to maximize your profits.

Time saving

Time is not just money. Time is also: free time, family and fun. And the more of them you have, the better. We give you more time.

Error avoidance

If you make mistakes in your accounts or tax returns, this not only costs you more tax, but can also have legal consequences. We help you to avoid mistakes.

Customized solutions

There are no one-size-fits-all solutions in tax law. Every business is different and we develop a customized tax strategy for you.

Tax optimization

We are familiar with legal tax benefits and can develop a strategy for you to reduce your tax burden and thus maximize your income.

Stress reduction

Delegating tasks has one main advantage: less stress. And that, we think, is probably one of the biggest advantages of hiring a tax consultant to do the work for you.
