France is one of Germany’s most important trading partners. German companies currently operate approximately 2,350 branches in France, employing a total of some 330,000 staff. Germany, in turn, is home to approximately 1,250 subsidiaries of French firms, which employ approximately 290,000 people.

When it comes to ensuring commercial success abroad, the importance of professional, reliable guidance in legal, tax- and audit-related queries and projects is not to be underestimated. Whether at home, abroad, and not least at the interface between countries.

The Mazars France Services team, led by Pierre Zapp (Mazars Berlin), Sabine Leuschner (Mazars Frankfurt), Jean-Louis Koessler (Mazars Strasbourg), Olivier Gramling (Mazars Strasbourg) and Mike Hoffmann (Mazars Strasbourg) comprises German and French lawyers, tax and corporate consultants and auditors. The services are designed to meet the specific needs of German companies doing business in France and French companies doing business in Germany.

They predominately cover advice on all aspects of importing and exporting, founding offices and company acquisitions abroad. However, Mazars also offers a portfolio of basic recurring services for everything from payroll and financial accounting to annual financial statements, tax returns and company audits.
