Development & Philosophy
History of the firm
A few years after World War II, Jürgen H. Schneider's grandfather, a retired bank director by the name of Mr. Hugo Schneider, laid the groundwork for what is today the tax advisory Kanzlei Schneider & von Pronay.
His son, Helmut Schneider, took charge of the firm in 1958. After he died in a car accident, Jürgen H. Schneider assumed control of the company in 1993.
In 1997, an external consultancy office was opened at 54497 Morbach in addition to the office operating in Idar-Oberstein.
Jürgen H. Schneider (Dipl.-Kfm.) and Andrea von Pronay (Dipl.-FW, FH) established a partnership together in 2019. At that point in time, Andrea von Pronay had already been working at the firm as a tax consultant for 7 years, during which time she successfully passed the exams required to become a specialist consultant for health care (DStV e.V.) and a specialist consultant for controlling and finance (DstV e.V.).
Reliability, competence, trust, success, and growth will therefore continue to be associated with the name of Kanzlei Schneider & von Pronay in the future, just as they have in the past.
Our firm's philosophy
According to the sages, changing perspectives is crucial.
If you cannot change the situation, change the perspective.
Right and left, up and down: Astronauts often report that in zero gravity in outer space such things completely lose relevance. The Earth, where there is so much conflict, is just a stunningly beautiful blue ball in space. This change of perspective leaves a lasting impression on many astronauts that continues to shape them for the rest of their lives after their return to Earth. It shows that it is always the point of view that counts when considering any matter.
Granted: In the corporate workforces and top management echelons of Germany, changes in perspective of this magnitude are rather rare. But the example illustrates that it can be very rewarding and satisfying to see things through different eyes. Learn to change your point of view and initiate your change of perspective together with us.
We are all familiar with what it feels like when problems keep recurring. Time to depart from familiar patterns of thought and to explore the plethora of possible new solutions. Work with us to change your perspective, your outlook on your company and your planning. Gain new insights, remodel your approaches. Let us address this together.
In this context, our focus is on structuring taxes for businesses and individuals, yet not exclusively.
Depending on the specific situation, a wide variety of challenges and degrees of complexity are involved. In order to make sound and well-balanced tax structuring proposals, it is necessary to analyse all the decision-making factors carefully from all perspectives, while taking into account the business and financial policy objectives and personal instructions of our clients. We give priority to people and their companies. In this context, securing your existence and the timely planning of your retirement are just as important as the proper tax structure. You will plan and calculate all this with us as your professional partner and achieve your personal life goals with our assistance.
A good change of perspective is the key to generating new ideas effectively.
Naturally, our company offers you professional advice in the fields of tax and business management consulting. But we can do more than that. Our areas of specialisation include organisational consulting, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions, business succession, and tax-optimised structures.
Our business is based on providing high-quality services for the benefit of our clients
Ensuring high quality continuously in our daily work is an indispensable element of our firm's principles. Yet, we do not wait for quality to develop by itself; instead, we actively promote it by organising the related processes.
Regular advanced training and further education are indispensable for us. Our employees are trained throughout their careers, in many cases leading to additional professional qualifications among our staff. This ensures that you will always find the right person to contact at Kanzlei Schneider & von Pronay; someone who is qualified to meet your demands and who can explain even complicated matters in a clear, comprehensive manner.
Close customer relations
It is not just our two locations in Idar-Oberstein and Morbach that place us right at the heart of your trading area. We would also be pleased to visit you directly on site in your company. As a result, our advice does not come from a “bureaucratic ivory tower” but is focused on your individual situation and circumstances.
