Five decades of experience and integrity

The origins of the WW+KN office go all the way back into the 1950s, when Josef Seifert founded his accountancy and tax office at the Alter Kornmarkt in Regensburg. He was later followed by Gerhard Wagner in Regensburg in 1979 and the office in Munich was founded by a former partner in 1984. In 2005, Matthias Winkler and Kerstin Winkler joined the Regensburg office and in 2011, Markus Krinninger and Dr. René Neubert joined the office in Munich. 2015 Marcel Radke was admitted as a new partner of the Regensburg office.

Seminars and publications

The WW+KN office distinguishes itself by an active calendar of seminars and publications. The WW+KN partners continually hold seminars at banks, companies, the Association of German Machine and System Construction or the German-Slovenian Chamber of Commerce for example. A core element at WW+KN are the annual year-end seminars for company managers, where fiscal recommendations for setting up year-end tax reports are presented.

Training and competence

Initial and ongoing training are very important at WW+KN. Once a week in each WW+KN office the internal “Tax Round” takes place where topics like administrative developments in the office, current taxation changes and special perennial questions. Additionally, each partner and specialised employee has to participate in a certain number of external trainings each year. This ensures that the expertise at WW+KN remains at the highest level. WW+KN’s competence has accordingly been recognised and rewarded many times in the past.
