Owner-managed SMEs

Value-adding advice for SMEs

Small and medium-sized enterprises are the driving force and backbone of the economy. But the complexity of tax legislation, with its many exemptions and special rules, throws up ever greater challenges for SMEs in particular. The frequency of legislative change, the widespread digitalisation and the growing globalisation of business activities require constant realignment if they want to ensure long-term growth. What is more, every owner-managed SME will sooner or later be faced with the issue of succession and its many pitfalls.
