It is our clients
who play the main role
in our firm’s history.
Founded by Prof. Zacharias in Cologne as long ago as 1946, personal, competent counselling and trustful supervision of our clients have, from the very beginning, been the central focus of our activities.
The admission of the tax consultant and auditor Josef Demmer as a partner very soon manifested itself in the present name of the company, Zacharias & Demmer. This expansion of our range of consultancy services was followed by the entry of the auditor and tax consultant Willi Engels as a further partner.
Since 2000 the league of partners in our family business has been expanded to include the next generation. The entry into the company of the auditor and tax consultant Hans-Josef Demmer was followed in 2010 by that of auditor and tax consultant Kai Arnold. With these four partners, further professionals and a competent staff, the company is, from a personnel point of view, also well-equipped to cope with larger clients.
Our style is characterised by an entrepreneurial way of thinking
Whilst the change of generations is often merely talked about, we, as a partner-managed company, are familiar with the requirements connected with this from our own daily practice. In this, reliability, integrity and trustworthiness are a matter of course, which we supplement by our forward-looking, entrepreneurial long-term vision.
Our clients profit from the direct personal supervision of our partners in all counselling and service performances. Independent from the size and complexity of the mandate they can at all times rely upon sound solutions to their problems coupled with a long-term perspective appropriate to their industry.
