Jürgen Schwendemann

German Tax Advisor

Jürgen Schwendemann works as a German Certified Tax Advisor at our headquarters in Frankfurt/Main. He advises national and international business clients of various industries, sizes, and legal forms, as well as private individuals on all tax and business-related issues.

One emphasis of his work is at the interface between corporate, banking, and capital market laws and tax law, and includes assisting FinTechs in Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) and the associated complex questions in the fields of VAT, income tax, and accounting. WINHELLER clients also value his experience with blockchain-based business models.

In addition, Jürgen Schwendemann advises on the tax-related aspects of an integration of charitable foundations or charitable limited liability companies (gGmbHs) into corporate structures. His area of responsibility also comprises tax returns for private investors in crypto currencies, including the determination of taxable and tax-free sales proceeds and the preparation of subsequent declarations of previously untaxed profits.

Before joining WINHELLER, Jürgen Schwendemann worked for Buzzacott LLP, Chartered Accountants, a large London-based tax consulting firm, where he was in charge of trading companies operating internationally with a focus on VAT within the EU. He is the author of various specialist books and articles. In his leisure time, he is a passionate fan of non-fiction, especially in the fields of psychology and medicine.
