Start-ups and Venture Capital

The beginning of all start-ups is the (common) idea, which does not exist in the way it did before. From this time on to a successful company, EXIT or IPO, it is an arduous, sometimes rocky road. This is because there are numerous tax, legal and business challenges that start-ups have to face.

At PKF, we know the typical challenges that founders face. No matter whether you are just working on a good idea, want to take on new partners, are looking for investors or are already recording your first sales: Our team of tax advisors and auditors will assist you with all relevant economic, tax and legal issues.

Are you looking for a partner who will provide comprehensive support for your start-up company from the very beginning to its successful completion?
