    AT A GLANCE

    Made up of 16 provinces, and with Berlin as its capital, Germany has Europe’s largest economy. And with a population of 84 million, it’s the second most populous country in Europe. 

    As a leading exporter of chemicals, machinery, metals, and vehicles, and with a highly skilled labour force, Germany has the fourth largest economy in the world. It’s a key player in the European Union (EU) and is the world’s top location for trade fairs.

    The official language is German and its currency is the euro (EUR).

    Our local Tax Natives in Germany can tell you everything you need to know about the ins and outs of your tax obligations there. Whether you’re buying a single property, or doing complex business deals, we’ll get you the advice you need. Just say the word and we can link you with a local expert who can answer all your questions. 

    THE HEADLINES
