How does it work?

In 5 easy steps

1. Onboarding

When you subscribe to the Kontist Tax Service through the Kontist App, we will call you to clarify the start date for your financial bookkeeping.

2. Receipt Management

After your onboarding is complete, the Kontist Tax Advisory's accounting team will take over your financial bookkeeping. As no transaction can be booked without a receipt, it is essential that you submit receipts and invoices as soon as you have them.

3. Invoicing

It is essential that you create legally compliant invoices when you invoice your clients as a business in Germany. If you invoice in Euros, you can use the Kontist Invoicing Tool in the Kontist Web App.

4. Bookkeeping & Taxes

As a business in Germany, you have an obligation to take care of your financial bookkeeping. When you are a customer of the Kontist Tax Service, your financial bookkeeping will be done by the Kontist Tax Advisory on top of your business and private tax. declarations.

5. Ongoing Support

Whether the German tax system with its infamous bureaucracy still confuses you or you're in doubt regarding your bookkeeping, we're happy to help!

It's as easy as that!


Do your thing, not your taxes!

Never forget a deadline or prepayment again and focus on your job. We take care of your tax issues and the communication with the tax office.

One app, one account and real people.

Although we're fully digital, you can always talk to our tax experts.

Everything in one place.
