Private persons and legal entities excessively seek tax advisors (Steuerberater) in Germany. The reason is that german law relating to all types of taxes is quite complicated, so without tax advisors’ professional assistance, it is almost impossible to complete annual tax returns or make correct business decisions independently.
German word Finanzberater is the same for both Tax advisor and Tax consultant.
