Tax consulting for trade (distance selling / import / export and marketing companies)

Germany has been a leader in the export of goods for many years. German goods have an excellent reputation across the globe and the German trade surplus is enormous. Trade helps in getting these goods to the customer. The trend is clearly towards distance selling of standard products.
Of course, we also want and need the goods and services from abroad. Many goods can be produced at a lower rate in foreign countries (especially in Asia) or some raw materials grow only in specific countries. Import firms or German sales companies of foreign groups bring these goods to us. We face a lower risk and the buying decision is easier.

Benefitax has extensive experience in tax-related support of trading companies. We are aware of most of the problems in finance and compliance before the client stumbles upon them. We identify possible solutions and if desired, provide full support as a One-Stop-Shop.
