Frank Martens As a tax consultant at FAIR AUDIT, I am responsible for preparing annual financial statements, tax returns and providing tax advice to our clients, mainly in the area of international tax law. Things that are important to me? Personal communication, accuracy and adherence to deadlines. I manage the projects of my clients from Germany and abroad with a steady hand - even under challenging conditions.

If you expect top performance from yourself and your team, you have to make sure you have the right work-life balance. Running and playing football provide me with an ideal balance to office work. I'm also involved in local politics as a municipal representative. I get very emotional at the football stadium: With my son, I regularly travel to away matches and cheer on my club, SC Freiburg.

Managing Director
Carl Schmoelder What I like best about FAIR AUDIT? The variety of my tasks! The spectrum ranges from financial accounting to auditing annual financial statements. I also like the expertise bundled in the team:This benefits our clients, who can rely on competent and individual support, but also myself, because the professional exchange with colleagues is extremely instructive. Whether it's at company parties or playing volleyball together: our team stands for cohesion and a good atmosphere, even outside of the day-to-day work at the company. Sport is one of my great passions anyway, especially football. In my free time, I play football with friends or watch Bundesliga matches. Which team do I keep my fingers crossed for? For me, there is only green and white, Werder Bremen, the team from my hometown.

Martina Hahne I know almost all our clients. Why? Because, as assistant to the management, I am their first point of contact. Together with my colleagues, I also take care of the company's organisation and accounting. My role as a service provider for the team and the clients always brings something new with it. It is therefore no surprise that I have remained loyal to FAIR AUDIT since its foundation.

In my professional practice, I make sure to react flexibly and in a solution-oriented manner, even under pressure. The best way for me to switch off is with a good book. Or on a trip with my husband and dog. For example, to the southwest of Germany. It's a home game, after all, I was born in Saarland and as such I also speak the local dialect - even if hardly anyone in Hamburg knows that.
