Steuerberatung Ludwig & Epp in Hanau

Experience Expertise Competence

For more than 70 years we have been a reliable partner in dealing with various tax issues. Thanks to decades of experience and industry-specific expertise, we have established ourselves as one of the leading tax consultancies in the Main-Kinzig district.

Our consultancy services focus on small to medium-sized companies in a wide range of industries. Ludwig & Epp is also a competent partner for freelancers, the self-employed, non-profit organisations and private individuals. We develop solutions tailored to the personal, economic and financial needs of each client.

Our client relationships, some of which have existed for decades, are based on a trusting, cooperative partnership and high quality standards, enabling us to achieve optimal results for our clients.

Our loyal team of competent, committed and long-standing employees is key to this success.


Tax returns

Whether business or private, we can prepare and optimise your tax returns. In doing so, we calculate the likely tax refunds or repayments. If doubts should arise during the investigation of tax assessments, we lodge an objection with the tax authority on your behalf and represent your interests as and when required, including before the fiscal court.

Annual financial statements

We prepare annual financial statements for corporations and partnerships, sole traders, freelancers, trusts and associations in accordance with business and tax law. Our focus is always on the preparation of tax-optimised results for our clients.


With specialist knowledge and practical experience, we can assist you with any tax audits instigated by the tax authority or the local social insurance agencies. We can have these checks carried out in our premises in order to minimise disruption of your business.

Business consultancy

Our business consultancy services offer concepts tailored to your specific needs (for example, liquidity and financial planning, business valuations, etc.). We develop well-considered and prudent approaches for every conceivable situation.

Digital financial accounting

Professional financial accounting is an indispensable basis for many business decisions. We can help you with this.
We handle the recording and account assignment of receipts both in digital and analogue form, prepare and submit preliminary VAT returns to the tax authority and undertake extensive business analyses. The DATEV Unternehmen online software enables us to retrieve and digitally post your receipts via a secure cloud, which means that it is no longer necessary to exchange receipts in hard copy.

Wage/construction payroll accounting and wage optimisation

Our scope of services includes the preparation of wage and salary statements including the electronic transmission of all tax and social security notifications to the relevant agencies. In addition, we provide strategic and forward-looking advice on the development of concepts, optimised in terms of tax and social security law for you as an employer and for your employees.

Inheritance and gift tax

Are you considering transferring, bequeathing or gifting assets? We would be happy to advise you on tax-optimised structuring options, and after determining the correct procedure, to prepare all the necessary tax returns.

Historie – Schreibmaschine


Our firm was founded in Hanau in 1946 by Dr. Wilhelm Zuschlag, whose son-in-law Dr. Klaus Becker took over the reins in the 1950s. The firm was later strengthened by the appointment of Burkhard Epp, Matthias Ludwig and Tobias Epp as partners, and it remains rooted in the Brothers Grimm city of Hanau to this day.

As BECKER EPP LUDWIG, we have been serving many of our clients for decades and over several generations; however, since the beginning of 2020, we have been operating under the formal name of BEL Ludwig & Epp PartGmbB Steuerberater, or Ludwig & Epp for short.

We offer our clients tailor-made solutions from a single source. We are ideally positioned to work in both analogue and digital formats and therefore can combine tradition and modernity while providing high-quality advice.

With experience spanning decades, Ludwig & Epp has gained a strong reputation for its reliable and cooperative partnerships.
Shape the future with us!
