Nonprofit Organizations in Germany

We advise nonprofit organizations, businesses and the public sector

WINHELLER is well known for its expertise in German nonprofit law and provides strategic legal and tax planning advice to a number of large German nonprofit organizations (NPOs). But our nonprofit attorneys also provide counsel to international NPOs and charities – many of which are based in the U.S. and are seeking to establish a presence in Germany. Our services include advice regarding all aspects of German nonprofit law and German nonprofit tax law, including the founding and management of German charitable Limited Liability Companies (LLC) and tax compliance.

Furthermore, our accountants regularly work with our clients’ finance and bookkeeping departments to ensure that their donation-soliciting activities comply with German law and industry accreditation and certification standards.
