Services for aircrew (pilots, flight attendants)

Pilots and flight attendants need to pay attention to a large number of unique aspects where income tax regulations are concerned, ranging from working materials to allowances. Particularly crew members who live overseas are often incorrectly taxed by German fiscal authorities, placing them at a great financial disadvantage. We ensure that you do not miss any opportunities to claim tax rebates and deductions. In our experience, because tax statements are often incorrect, we review them and utilize legal appeals where necessary to ensure that you receive just treatment in the eyes of the law. In particular, for a large number of pilots, we have managed to have the considerable costs of their pilot training courses recognized as tax-deductible by fiscal authorities, in some cases even many years after they completed their training.

Above all, our range of products and services includes the following:

  • Compilation of income tax returns
  • Income tax returns for crew members who reside overseas
  • Review of tax statements
  • Conducting out-of-court legal appeals
  • Legal action in financial courts and the Federal Fiscal Court (BFH)
  • Assertion of tax deductibility for pilot training courses
  • Consulting on all issues related to income tax
