PKF Wulf Group Awarded Best Tax Consultants and Auditors of the Year

19 Jul 2019

Four offices in PKF Wulf Group have been awarded 'Best Tax Consultants of the Year 2019', and two awarded 'Best Auditors of the Year 2019', by renowned business magazine Handelsblatt.

To determine who should win, the Sozialwissenschaftliche Institut Schad (S.W.I. Finance) examined more than 4,100 tax consultants and around 800 auditors throughout Germany. The decisive criteria included basic knowledge, professional competence and the use of specialist consultants. The results were broken down by city, subject area and sector.

Balinger office ranked among the top

PKF Wulf Egermann in Balingen, PKF Wulf Engelhardt in Augsburg, PKF Wulf Burr in Weissach and PKF Wulf & Partner in Stuttgart made it to the top 657 of 4,129 candidates in the tax consultancy category.

PKF Wulf Egermann and PKF Wulf & Partner were also shortlisted in the audit category and placed among the best 103 out of 791 applicants.

All the offices performed well above average in the lists. In the categories "Best Tax Advisor 2019" and "Best Auditor 2019", the offices achieved 85 to 90 per cent of the possible total score.

Strong results confirm previous years' record

PKF Wulf Group is proud that, once again, it has achieved strong results in the Handelsblatt awards. Like many other industries, tax consultants and accountants are struggling with digitization and a shortage of skilled workers. However, this strong performance demonstrates that the company is on the right track in the long term.

Group Founder Martin Wulf commented on the results: "We see the titles 'Best Tax Consultant 2019' and 'Best Auditor 2019' primarily as an award for the entire team. We have 230 employees and 14 shareholders who all perform excellent work at the various offices and our continuous growth reflects this success. In addition, we are always anxious to train young employees at the DHBW University and provide them with targeted further training. This means that we are well prepared, not only for the tasks ahead, but also for any future changes."

Consultant to small and medium-sized businesses and family businesses

The success story continues. At its locations in Baden-Württemberg and Bavaria and also throughout Germany, the Group's services and industry knowledge often exceed its clients'  expectations.

As "the advisor to small and medium-sized businesses and family businesses", the Group also considers itself "the task solver and innovative designer" with the aim not only of analysing the challenges, but also of actively tackling and overcoming them.

New PKF partner joins Stuttgart office

PKF Wulf Group is delighted to announce that auditor and tax consultant Dr Rainer Schultheiß will strengthen the team in Stuttgart from 1 July. Dr Schultheiß specialises in the valuation of companies and has worked successfully in this area for a Big Four company in recent years. This appointment reflects the enduring quality of the Group.

Dr Schultheiß has written several specialist industry articles, among others. With his wealth of experience, Dr Schultheiß will take over, expand and further professionalise the management of the existing company valuation department of the Group.
