Additional qualification: certified specialist advisor for online trade / e-commerce (IFU / ISM g GmbH)
Our partner, Linda Schmidt Franken, tax advisor, acquired the additional qualification of certified specialist advisor for online trade / e-commerce (IFU / ISM g GmbH) in spring 2021. We are particularly pleased about this, as we can prepare our clients exclusively with a view to the legal framework in the online market, tax strategies and special features, as well as point out opportunities and potential problem areas in this consulting area.
The past 2 years in particular have shown us the essential value of well-founded know-how in this field. Because Corona has intensified the changed consumer behavior of Germans again. The gross sales of goods in e-commerce rose by 14.6 percent to 83.3 billion euros. Consumers buy significantly more everyday necessities such as groceries, drugstore goods and medication on the Internet, which means that online retailing is growing strongly.
It can be clearly seen that the corona pandemic has significantly accelerated the development of retail towards e-commerce. From our point of view, this development will not be reversed either, which is why we would now like to set one of our priorities here.
