We take these tasks off your shoulders

Financial bookkeeping

Completely outsource your monthly financial bookkeeping. Never again search through hundreds of emails for PDF receipts or check countless online tools to find the invoice download function.

Commercial and private tax declaration 

Is the annual deadline to submit your tax declaration approaching faster than expected? Avoid those long stressful nights trying to find this one missing paper receipt. We handle your tax declaration completely. 

Profit-and-Loss calculation 

Every item in the P&L (or so-called EÜR) determines your tax burden. We make sure that no expense, no matter how small, goes unnoticed. Sit back - because we take care of it!

Advance VAT returns  

Whether monthly or quarterly: Never again deal with annoying advance VAT payments, because we take them off your hands. Always on time and of course reliably.

Up-to-date advance tax payments

Your income fluctuates - and so does your tax burden. We take care that your advance tax payments are always up to date and thus avoid unpleasant surprises.

Excellent service hotline

To make sure you can reach someone for your tax-related questions – even on a Friday afternoon – our hotline is available at 5 days a week from 9am to 6pm.

Register online within just a few minutes

This is how it works 

Are we a match? 

Just click on "Get free initial consultation" and find out immediately if we can offer you the Kontist tax service. You can also find all the details in our FAQ section further down on this page. Of course, the initial consultation is completely free of charge and without obligation. You will only incur costs if you decide to actually book the tax service later.


If you decide to book the Kontist tax service, we will ask you a few more questions about your self-employment during our onboarding (e.g. your tax number, responsible local tax authority, etc.). Of course, we will be happy to answer your questions as well!

Open your business bank account

After that, Kontist GmbH will ask you to open your Kontist business bank account in just 9 minutes. Your account is immediately opened, already included in the fixed fee without any additional costs and it is a prerequisite to use the tax service. If you already have a Kontist business account, we will automatically ask you only the tax questions.

More time to grow your business. 

Now lean back, we are taking over: Invest the time you've gained in your business or use it for whatever is important to you. Of course, your tax service team will contact you if there are any questions or if there is something to discuss. You always have full control over your tax topics without having to handle them yourself.

The solution for financial organization

Taxes, bookkeeping and banking in one app

Kontist's mission is to make life easier for the self-employed. For this purpose, Kontist GmbH has not only rethought banking, but also tax advisory. Our cornerstone is the business bank account provided by Kontist GmbH: it automatically records and categorizes all of your transactions and calculates your tax load, in other words, your real net. In order to make payments convenient and secure, your business account also includes a physical and virtual Visa card, as well as mobile payment options. This makes it easy for Kontist Service GmbH to relieve you of the preparatory financial accounting – an accounting tool is no longer necessary. Therefore, the business bank account provided by Kontist GmbH is required for the tax service and included in the fixed fee.

Your experienced tax advisor of Kontist Steuerberatungsgesellschaft mbH is right at your side for all tax consulting services, handling your tax-related tasks and communicating with the tax authority on your behalf. Without paperwork.

You can cancel the tax service on a monthly basis, however, annual services (e.g. tax declaration) will only be completed if you have paid the full monthly fee for that year. However, these can only become due at a later point in time, when the tax returns are submitted, so that you have more time to get to know our service. For additional activities outside of the offer, additional costs may be incurred by prior arrangement (see following questions).

Which additional costs may occur?

We would like to offer you the widest possible range of services for the monthly fixed fee of 149 €. Some matters that do not concern your self-employment will be billed separately.

The following matters will be charged with 99 € each (once per case) by Kontist Steuerberatung:

  • Annex N (employee - client/partner)

For ongoing activities of Kontist Steuerberatung in connection with financial accounting, advance tax payments and advance VAT returns, no additional costs are incurred.

What about services for the calendar year of 2020?

If you have booked the Kontist tax service until 31.12.2020, you already secured yourself the monthly fixed fee of 99 € plus VAT. If you do not need any services for the year 2020, you started paying the monthly fixed fee in December and keep this reduced price permanently. For customers who book the tax service from January 2021, the regular price of 149 € per month plus VAT applies. If you would like Kontist Steuerberatung to take over services for the year 2020 (e.g. commercial or private tax declaration, P&L), all monthly fees for 2020 (i.e. 99 € per month for January to December 2020) are due retrospectively.
