International Services

A strong partner for worldwide growth

Cross-border activities are no longer just an issue for large companies and corporations. In today’s globalised world, small and medium-sized companies and private individuals are also faced with issues such as cross-border taxation. SMEs often operate beyond national borders. This means that the services of KBHT do not end at the German border either. As a member of Allinial Global, KBHT serves both German clients with worldwide operations and international companies with operations in Germany.

We believe in teamwork, at national and global level


With our international expertise in international tax law and as a member of Allinial Global, one of the five largest associations of independent accounting and consulting firms in the world, we consult and audit our clients both ways across the border. Allinial Global is an award-winning association, being named "Association of the Year 2018" and "Rising Star Association of the Year 2019". Thanks to our international expertise, backed by the know-how of some 19,000 experts in 65 countries, we can provide you with competent and satisfactory one-stop answers to all your questions about tax and company law in a context that is relevant to you and your country.

As well as this, KBHT has a special team to look after international clients that want to set up a branch or subsidiary in Germany or are already established here.
