DLG e.V. was founded in Berlin, Germany, in 1976 and has been active for more than 30 years. Today, our employees provide assistance to more than 20,000 members in 64 consulting centers in the Berlin area and in the new Bundesländer [the states of the former German Democratic Republic].
Our employees regularly take part in training courses and seminars, in order to ensure that their knowledge of tax legislation is always up to date, and that, therefore, they can always provide up-to-date advice concerning all queries and tax-related issues. Using state-of-the-art technology and the latest software, our employees provide you with prompt, reliable and individual assistance.
As one of the most renowned associations in Berlin and the new Bundesländer, it is our wish and our task to assist our members by always making full use of the tax-saving opportunities available to them. This applies not only to reimbursement by the Revenue Office [Finanzamt] of taxes already paid, but also to your future tax planning requirements.
At the present time, there are approximately 700 approved payroll tax assistance associations with around 17,000 consulting centers in the Federal Republic of Germany, which provide assistance to around 3 million members. Most of these are organized in umbrella associations such as the Neuer Verband der Lohnsteuerhilfevereine [New Association of Payroll Tax Assistance Associations] (NVL e.V.) and the Bundesverband der Lohnsteuerhilfevereine [German Federal Association of Payroll Tax Assistance Associations] (BDL e.V.), but in both a legal and a commercial sense they all work completely independently. For this reason, members who want to change their consulting center and not to remain within the same association must submit written notice of termination in advance, subject to the relevant notice periods.
As represented by the Management Board, DLG Lohnsteuerhilfeverein [Payroll Tax Assistance Association] is a member of the Bund der Steuerzahler [German Taxpayers’ Federation].
