Since passing my tax consultant exam in spring 2008, I have been preoccupied with the question of what further development opportunities I have as a tax consultant in a firm, as switching to self-employment or becoming a partner in a joint practice has not been an option for me so far.
Hence my primary goal was the successful work in a position where I can take professional and personal responsibility and which offers development opportunities in this area.
My path to becoming a tax consultant was rather unconventional, because, after obtaining my high school diploma, I decided to first complete an apprenticeship as a tax clerk, then pursue further training as an accountant and a few years later I completed further training to become a tax specialist. These individual training steps gave me a very practice-oriented basis, ideal for my successful tax consultant exam without any studies.
My work as a tax consultant
I have been working as a tax consultant at the ALR Treuhand GmbH since 2014. Here, I can shape my varied work days according to my wishes and goals.
Next to the classic client responsibility, I have the opportunity to share knowledge and structure with young professionals and get them enthusiastic about the profession, to be responsible for the area of financial accounting in a team and to take on the involved personnel responsibility.
Through my participation in working groups or as authorised representative, I also have the opportunity to help shape and implement processes of all kinds.
