About us

What sets us apart from others.

We are a service provider with a family background of three generations.

Our company was founded in 1928 by Dr. Wilhelm Schumacher, Münster's first auditor, and continued as well as shaped by its extended circle of partners over the decades. To date, HLB Schumacher has developed into a leading, nationally active auditing and tax consulting firm in Münster as well as at the Leipzig location since 2008.

More than 130 qualified employees at the Münster and Leipzig locations support our nationally and internationally oriented clients. We understand what we do down to the details, we do not deliver paper but solutions instead, and we take advantage of creative space.

Direct contact persons who provide comprehensive consulting and keep an eye on all things concerning the client and the simultaneous, cross-area cooperation with our specialists produce practical and robust solutions.

We are a premium partner to medium-sized businesses. Our comprehensive consultancy portfolio – consisting of auditing, tax consulting, legal advice and corporate consulting as well as IT consulting and additional specialist fields – covers decision makers’ requirements in nearly all matters of corporate governance. At the highest level of quality.
