Five questions for Anna Kochs
Which areas do you mainly work in?
Tax consulting and auditing.
What problems do you solve for your clients?
At HLB, our everyday activities involve communicating with clients as well as with tax authorities, communities or various officials. Sometimes we serve as a mediator between tense parties. An example is our support in operating audits if the opinion of our clients doesn’t agree with that of the tax authorities.

I've been at HLB Linn Goppold since October 2014. After my training as tax consultant, I completed business studies at the Technical University of Munich (BA), then worked for two years as a consultant in one of the big four auditing firms in the Corporate Tax Department. I completed a Master of Taxation (MA) degree while working from July 2014 to July 2016, also at the Technical University of Munich.
