ABOUT US

BZG is an interdisciplinary consulting and auditing partnership in Münster. As a highly qualified team, we have been providing our clients with interdisciplinary advice in the fields of tax consulting, auditing and legal advice for over 10 years. Our services include both ongoing consulting and project support.

We serve clients from a wide range of fields, industries and sizes. The consulting of private individuals, freelancers and tradesmen, medium-sized companies/groups of companies and their shareholders is one of our core competencies.

In addition, we offer comprehensive consulting services for cities and municipalities and their subsidiaries, public corporations and non-profit foundations / institutions / associations/ clubs as a further core competence.

HISTORY & PHILOSOPHY

We founded our partnership in 2008. From the very beginning we have focused on the interdisciplinary consulting approach. This enables us to provide our clients with the highest level of advice in tax, business and legal matters as well as at the interfaces of these areas. If, for example, in the course of declaration advice, facts become apparent which go beyond these and offer risks or opportunities for the client, we can identify these early on thanks to our interdisciplinary approach and together find the best solution for the client. The client is supported by his contact person.

We attach great importance to multiple qualifications in our team and are constantly expanding these qualifications through support in further education and training and the promotion of professional examinations. Starting early with this support, we are always pleased when we are able to convince trainees, interns and working students of our passion for the profession and when our paths cross more than once.

The professional exchange between colleagues from all disciplines is of great importance to us. After all, your issues can, should and must be examined from different perspectives (tax, business and legal consulting) in order to develop the best solution alternatives tailored to your needs.

We see ourselves as partners of our clients, with whom we master the daily challenges and demands together. We are a consulting boutique that provides individual advice and support tailored to the individual case. We assist our clients with problems and challenges in everyday and extraordinary situations. For our clients, we provide advice, planning and design, but also act in court for them. In our experience, many challenges can be mastered if a clear and structured plan of action has been worked out with the consultant. Also, alternative steps can be pointed out early in the process.

Just like our clients, we are interested in sustainable success. Therefore, we invest in a long-term orientation of partnership. For our clients it is important to have reliable and permanent contact persons. The satisfaction of our clients as well as our colleagues is our daily incentive.

TEAM

Our team lives from all participants. Everyone is important for us to succeed.

Respect, mutual appreciation as well as fair and open interaction are not just empty phrases for us, but practiced beliefs. A sense of responsibility and mutual trust are as important as professional expertise. As personalities, we partners stand up for these values. We are the first contact for our employees to clarify important questions and to identify challenges at an early stage and master them together. Each partner has special skills and talents, which he puts at the service of the firm and thus at the service of the clients.
