Exemption for the recognition of existing tax advisory companies granted

The capital commitment provision according to Section 50a of the Tax Advisory Act (StBerG) is of central importance for the recognition of tax consulting companies. In principle, shareholders should only be professionals. For companies that were already recognised before this provision entered into force, there is protection of the stock. If the shareholders' holdings change in the case of these companies, recognition must be revoked by the competent authority under certain conditions. In individual cases, an exemption may be waived.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the Chamber of Tax Advisors, in whose district the company is located.

This procedure can also be carried out through a "single point of contact". The "Single Contact Person" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the country for service providers.


The requirements for an exemption are laid down in Section 154 of the Tax Advisors Act (StBerG). These are individual decisions.

Which documents are required?

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?
