Tax Advisor: Reappointment

Under certain conditions, former tax advisors and tax representatives can be reappointed.

Former tax advisors and tax representatives can be reappointed if

  • the appointment has expired by waiver vis-à-vis the competent Chamber of Tax Consultants.
    If the appointment has been waived after the initiation of professional court proceedings, the reappointment can usually not take place before the expiry of eight years.
  • in the event of the termination of the order due to legally binding exclusion from the profession, the legally binding exclusion has been lifted by way of grace or at least eight years have elapsed since the legally binding exclusion,
  • the order is revoked and the reasons that were decisive for the revocation (for example, order by fraudulent deception, threat or bribery) no longer exist.

The application shall be accompanied, inter alia:

  • Certificate (original or certified copy) of the successfully passed tax consultant examination,
  • in the case of reappointment after revocation, proof that the reasons that were decisive for the revocation of the order no longer exist,
  • Passport photo
  • current certificate of good conduct,
  • Proof of sufficient professional indemnity insurance.

Depending on the intended activity (for example, self-employment, activity as an employee or freelancer with a person or association), different proof documents must be provided.
