1 We save more than just your money Tailor-made solutions with global reach Accounting Tax Legal Audit
2 ETL International More than 40 years of experience ETL stands for European Tax and Law and has its head office in Berlin, Germany. Our group of companies offers a comprehensive portfolio of accounting, tax, legal and auditing services for small and medium-sized firms in all business sectors. With more than 800 tax and accounting offices, auditors, lawyers and other affiliates we are represented across Europe, in Asia, Africa, North and South America. Day by day, our people use their local expertise and global insight to help clients through the complexity of international issues and regulations. Every client, whether they are a sole proprietor or a multinational company, receives the highest level of personalized service and individual attention. Our concept is simple: we want to fulfil our client s business needs from company formation to business succession, regardless of location. It is our approach to provide integrated services from a single source and we have established a number of different affiliates for services such as leasing, factoring and insurance. In particular, ETL offers small and medium-sized clients high-level integrated services through an interdisciplinary network, which allows local expertise and global reach in many countries around the globe. 2
3 Consultancy in a network Customized solutions with local expertise and global reach In times of increased competition and complex individual requirements, we meet client demands through an individualized approach. As leading network of firms in Europe, interdisciplinary teamwork has always been the basis of our success. Clients can choose from various local experts within a constantly growing network that offers integrated services. We are large enough to serve internationally active clients on a global basis, and small enough to offer small and medium-sized companies a face to face consulting service in their own environment. Consultancy in a network allows flexibility and efficiency on both sides. Clients do not have a long-term service commitment and can select only those services that they actually need. In addition, they have only one contact person dealing with all issues which may arise. This approach prevents any loss of information and means there is no need to speak to different people. Time is money: we pay a lot of attention to efficiency. The ETL network represents a large firm s competence with a small firm s service, quality and down-to-earth cost structure. 3
4 State-of-the-art consulting Special services for special needs We have a full range of specialized services to offer in the current dynamic business environment. Wherever, whenever and however our clients businesses require qualified suggestions and custom-made solutions, our experts deliver comprehensive and seamless advice. Our wide service portfolio ensures the success of our clients business and overcomes both routine and extraordinary challenges in or outside of their domestic markets. ETL International s network assures efficient and smart advice from local professionals who have domestic accounting, tax, legal and audit knowledge. However, it is not only our broad range of services that makes us unique it is also our deep industry knowledge. The combination of our knowledge and expertise allows unified advice for many individual business sectors such as healthcare, the catering industry, petrol stations and senior citizens. 4
5 Accounting services range from bookkeeping to preparing end-of-year financial statements and accompanying notes as well as management reports. We also prepare expert opinions and assist in the implementation of accounting policies and supervisory practices. Tax consultancy requires highly-qualified experts who find the optimal structure for a client s business and represent them with the respective tax and company authorities. Our local offices and all our highly qualified support units for special cases know the perils of international tax law, IFRS, VAT and restructuring issues. Legal services involve a range of nationally and internationally relevant fields of business law. Our track record includes drawing up, evaluating and negotiating various types of business contracts and agreements, preparing cases and representing clients in court. Audit service quality is fundamentally important to foster trust in the reporting process. We offer audit services based on achieving a real understanding of our clients businesses and the quality and effectiveness of their accounting and control systems. Payroll accounting is a matter of trust and requires confidentiality, absolute reliability and competent advice concerning all questions surrounding payrolls and wages. Our services include the creation of payroll statements, health insurance registration, correspondence with authorities and completion of audits by social security. Management consulting services deliver solutions for clients business needs. We can help start a business, apply for state aid and overcome those challenging situations where a client s business encounters more difficulties than expected. Financial services are provided by specialized network members and include insurance, leasing, factoring and more. Training is vital. We offer tailor-made training on demand at the ETL Academy or in-house. Within our academy, we train and develop our employees and partners to guarantee the same high quality of our services all around the world. IT services include storage, hardware and software solutions. We provide the necessary expertise for all kinds of related IT services in many countries, such as enterprise storage and data protection services, ebilling and many more. 5
6 Trust our network Our aim is your success Our clients Most ETL clients are small or medium-sized businesses from different industries e. g. petrol stations, trading companies, medical services or even sports professionals, who demand the expertise of a big company with the service care and personal attention of a small company. They are looking for flexibility and efficiency, quality yet affordability from a viable alternative to the Big Four. Our mission We give our best to grow our network of accounting, tax, legal and auditing experts day by day, so that our clients can get the best service possible. We hold regular training and practice group meetings to guarantee the same high-quality service for each ETL client wherever they are based. We place great importance on communication within our international network we are fluent in our clients language and understand their values and culture. 6
7 Our target Being one of the biggest networks in Europe and in the market for more than 40 years is not enough in times of globalization. ETL wants to grow beyond the geographic boundaries that are strategically important for European companies that are active internationally. Present in all major European countries and Asia, Africa, North and South America, our aspiration is to be the first choice business relationship when multinational companies plan to increase their business efficiency through tax and legal advice and ensure compliance with domestic tax legislation requirements. Our difference The path of success has led us through many different countries, rules and regulations and taught us about the most diverse requirements for the most diverse clients. What has stayed the same since day one is our vision, enthusiasm, creativity and expertise. What has changed since then is our experience within the tax and legal environment, which has taught us that when our clients succeed, we succeed. The difference is our unique proficiency in our daily work that has proven itself again and again through long-term partnerships and successful clients. 7
