Mueller & Co., LLP hosted four other U.S.-based CPA firms from Alabama, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, and four firms from Germany for German US Accounting and Tax Summit on April 29, 30 and May 1. The five U.S. firms’ affiliation is through CPAmerica International, an association of independently owned and managed CPA and consulting firms in the U.S. The four German firm’s affiliation is through Crowe Horwath International, of which CPAmerica is a member.
“Our firm and all of the Crowe Horwath Deutschland firms are excited about the prospects for our employees and clients as we finalize an employee exchange program, and even resources like the German U.S. desk which will provide clients with bilingual personnel to contact when inquiring about U.S. or German tax and accounting related questions and issues,” said Wolfgang Kirschning, Partner of RWT Horwath GmbH in Stuttgart.
The five U.S. based CPAmerica International firms were JamisonMoneyFarmer PC, Malin Bergquist & Company, LLP, Mueller & Co., LLP, Rushton & Company, and Wegner CPAs. The four Crowe Horwath International firms in Germany are Crowe Kleeberg, TPW Todt & Partner, Intertax Treuhand, and RWT Horwath.
Alan Deichler, President of CPAmerica who also attended the Summit, said, “It is great to see our member firms working together to create effective solutions for the needs of their clients.”
“We will be able to share our respective local market knowledge to properly service our multinational clients as well as firms interested in expanding globally. We share their vision and understand the importance of international growth and providing financial and strategic advisory services to multinational firms,” said Bryan R. Chandler, JamisonMoneyFarmer’s Managing Shareholder.
The Summit ended with a site visit to a German automotive manufacturing supplier and then a lunch at Mueller’s private dining room in their worldwide headquarters with several local German companies, and dignitaries from Elgin’s Chamber of Commerce, Mayor’s office, and its Economic Development group.
The three-day Summit was the result of over 18 months of discussions of how to best address the needs of the growing multinational, German-owned companies who are investing in subsidiaries in the Eastern United States.
