Our international presence

We are members of Praxity, the leading international alliance of independent auditing and tax consulting companies with over 700 locations in more than 110 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 we can provide optimal advice to US clients who invest in Germany and equally to German companies with interests in the US. We also have special expertise in the German-Chinese business environment. Understanding the importance of this growing relationship, FALK established its China Desks in Frankfurt and Heidelberg in 2011. We recently opened another China Desk in Shanghai.
