Nesemann & Grambeck

The combination of the three German VAT rates (19%, 7% and 0%) does not only result in 26% but also leads to many questions which we are happy to answer. It does not matter if you are a small or a big company, if you look for ongoing or one-off advice. Finally, it is the value added to your business that counts. Have we sparked your interest? Then you should contact us!

My studies in commerce sparked my interest in the tax law. I want to help you avoid costly legal disputes with the tax authorities. In this regard I can draw from my former job as a tax auditor.

During my employment at Ernst & Young (EY) I built up and led a team of VAT experts. At that time I was able to further develop my skills in the field of VAT. Since 2004 I have worked as a self-employed tax consultant specializing in VAT. To highlight the particular profile of our firm it was renamed in 2011 as:

I am focused on the VAT issues of cross-border trade and financial services, as well as VAT questions in the real estate industry. In addition to sports, my family is the center of my private life.

I studied economics in Goettingen and hold a doctorate from the International Tax Institute (IIFS) / University of Hamburg. In my first 7 years on the job I learned the ropes of tax consultancy at Susat & Partner OHG, a mid-sized tax consultany and accounting firm in Hamburg. Although I basically covered all tax areas, I fully focused on VAT after passing the tax advisor exam. Concluding my one-year assignment in London on VAT (at Grant Thornton) I came to PWC Hamburg, where I worked as a Senior Manager in the Hamburg indirect tax team.

In my initial meetings with Carsten it quickly became clear to me that a move into a fully VAT-focused tax practice would be an exciting challenge for me. I not only like to take economic risks, but also appreciate the possibility to independently advise my clients in such a complex area which requires both technical and communication skills. VAT is not just my profession but almost a hobby which means that I also think about VAT in my spare time (we have 4 children at the age of 4, 9, 15 and 20).

My focus is in the service sector (such as electronic services, maritime business, logistics and event services). I closely observe developments at the EU level because the continuing lack of harmonization bears not only risks but also opportunities.
