In 1981 Josef Ludwig founded the tax consultancy in Trier as a solo business. In 1997 it was transformed into a tax consultancy and auditing firm. The auditing activities were spun off in 2011 into a separate auditing firm – LUDWIG & DIENER Revision GmbH Wirtschaftsprüfungsgesellschaft.

In 1994 the demand for international tax advice led to the establishment of LUDWIG & MALDENER S.à r.l. in Luxembourg. LMS Services S.à r.l. was set up in 2012 in Grevenmacher to provide support for foreign investors locating in Luxembourg and to manage holding companies.

LUDWIG & MÜLLER Steuerberatungsgesellschaft mbH has been operating In Bernburg (Saxony-Anhalt) since 1993. It advises companies and individuals in the region on national and international tax law.

In 2012 the close collaborative relationships of all five companies led to the establishment of the consultancy network LUDWIG CONSULT.

Trust and service: This also applies to us as an employer

The success of the consultancy network rests on many shoulders; it would not be possible without a team of committed and motivated employees. In addition to individual objectives, the annual appraisal and performance reviews are an opportunity to discuss personal needs in their team work and provisions for professional development and further training. In order to promote a job design compatible with the various life phases the consultancy network offers all employees, in addition to flexible working hours, the possibility to consider and discuss personal and professional concerns with an in-house personal and business coach. The trainees in particular are provided with guidance in the initial phase as they change from the school learning system to the work system and are integrated into the activities of the consultancy. The coaching also benefits emerging team leaders, who are individually supported in the development of their management skills. The atmosphere of collegiality and wellbeing is also created by the free daily supply to all employees of water, coffee, tea and fruit, and also by purposeful health-promoting activities, such as internal Health Days with specialist lectures and surveys or training sessions for the LUDWIG running group. True to the consultancy motto “We celebrate success together”, a variety of team events, employee parties and consultancy trips are organised in the course of the year.

We have developed together with our managerial staff and employees a consultancy philosophy, which guides us in our daily team work and in the cooperation with our clients and business partners. This philosophy comprises 8 key tenets, which are organised according to various guiding principles of conduct:

  1. We work and live in a consultancy network: the LUDWIG CONSULT group.
  2. We work with clear and understandable objectives.
  3. The consultancy is our living environment. We cultivate respectful and open interaction amongst us. Each individual should feel at ease at work.
  4. We are service providers for our clients and work together with them. Sincerity and friendliness are of paramount importance to us.
  5. Our shared objective is to achieve the highest quality service.
  6. We trust each other.
  7. The success of our company is a result of the successes of all employees and clients.
  8. Everything good can be improved. We shape our company together.
