Our international presence

We are members of Praxity, the leading international alliance of independent auditing and tax consulting companies with 630 locations in more than 100 countries. We are happy to support German companies abroad and the globalization of their business. Vice versa, German subsidiaries of foreign companies can also benefit from our know-how in international accounting or from our expertise in cross-border consulting.

Our US Desk in Heidelberg is staffed principally by German professionals who also hold the US CPA qualification. This means that we can provide optimal advice to US clients who invest in Germany and equally to German companies with interests in the USA.

We also have special expertise in the area of German-Chinese business relationships. In anticipation of the requirement, FALK established its China Desks in Frankfurt and Heidelberg in 2011. We recently opened another China Desk in Shanghai.
