Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

Participation in the tax consultant examination requires admission. According to the Tax Consultancy Act (StBerG), there are several ways to gain admission to the tax consultant examination:

  • The first requirement is the successful completion of a university degree in economics or law or another university degree with an economics specialization. The applicant must then have worked in practice. The duration of this activity depends on the standard period of study of the completed university degree. If at least eight semesters are completed, two years are required; if less than eight semesters are completed, three years of practical work must be completed.
  • An applicant may also be admitted to the tax consultant examination if he or she has completed ten years of practical work in the field of tax law after completing commercial training. In the case of successfully passing the examination to become a certified accountant or tax specialist, this period is reduced to seven years of practical work.
  • Civil servants in the higher civil service or comparable employees of the tax authorities can also be admitted to the examination if they have worked in practice for at least seven years as a clerk or in at least an equivalent position.

The examination must be taken before an examination board to be formed by the highest state authority responsible for financial administration.
