Eveline Beer started her career in 2004 at one of the Big 4 accounting firms. From the outset, her focus was on VAT.

Eveline advises multinational companies on both domestic and international VAT issues. The majority of her clients operate in the retail and automotive sectors. Other clients represented by Eveline include equipment manufacturers, while large and medium-sized businesses, German corporate groups and foreign companies of all sizes, including DAX 30 quoted companies, rely on her VAT expertise in special cases as well as on a routine basis.

Eveline's work on international projects includes undertaking VAT reviews, assisting clients with their VAT reporting obligations and advising clients on how to reorganise their supply chains. In this respect, she works closely with KMLZ's network of experienced and leading tax experts in all member states of the European Union, as well as a large number of additional countries.

Eveline regularly holds in-house VAT seminars for clients and assists them on-site with their day-to-day business, as well as in the course of VAT audits. Eveline is a deputy member of the European Commission's expert group for VAT-related issues (VAT Expert Group) and regularly publishes articles in professional magazines.
