Non-Profit Sector and Public Sector

Flick Gocke Schaumburg is one of the leading legal and tax advisory firms for tax-exempt organizations, particularly non-profit organizations and legal persons under public law, including churches.

The advisors in our NPO team share a common aim: to ensure our clients can work sustainably and with legal certainty. With our industry-based approach and long-standing experience, we know the pitfalls our clients can face.

Advisory across the board

Our expertise encompasses non-profit law, association law and foundation law, and all types of taxation, including income taxes and VAT. We assist in the structuring of CSR projects and advise clients on tax audits, transactions, and reorganizations (mergers, spin-offs, and changes of legal form). We also advise charitable organizations on accounting matters, auditing, and tax compliance, and we represent clients before the tax courts.

We are specialists in the taxation of non-charitable foundations, such as family and business foundations, as well as societies and associations, in particular professional and sports associations, and the personal taxation of athletes.

Expert guidance through complex regulations

Our clients value our rapid and reliable guidance. We present the increasingly complex regulations in an easily understandable way. In interdisciplinary teams, we advise not only on the various types of tax (such as income taxes and VAT) but also on non-profit law, constitutional law and financial reporting.

We are opinion leaders who regularly publish in trade journals and hold presentations across Germany. We work with leading associations in the non-profit sector and maintain close contacts with leading academics, judges and senior administrators in the third sector.
