Central and Eastern European Circle Meeting 2016

Meeting Overview

The 2016 Central and Eastern European Circle meeting offered a unique opportunity for members of the Eastern Circle to reinforce their business relations with Central Circle firms. 

Yellow Castle Montabaur, Germany

The meeting was organised by Central Circle Leaders Michael Grüne and Thomas Althoff and kindly hosted by Arno Steudter from MGI Dr. Steudter Revision GmbH, Ransbach-Baumbach. The meeting attracted 35 participants from 24 firms coming from Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Czech Republic, Hungary, Rumania, and Poland.

Our venue was at the yellow castle of Montabaur. This is the second time that Central European Circle members have gathered in Montaubaur, the first time being in 2009. 

The evening before the conference, the team had great dinner at the Castle’s conference centre, followed by lively talks at the bar. 

Collaboration

The next day began with the welcome notes from Arno Steudter and the Circle coordinators Michael Grüne and Thomas Althoff. Greater part of morning was devoted to presentations of past collaborations among MGI Worldwide firms. First, Michael Grüne and László Killik shared a client case study in which their firms, Prof. Dr. Binder, Dr. Dr. Hillebrecht u.Partner GmbH and BPO AUDIT TAX collaborated closely.

Following this, Hana Daenhardtová from LTA Tax s.r.o. Prague, gave a brief case study about LTA Tax’s collaboration with MGI Slovakia member, Paragraf Tax Advisory and Accountancy Office. Teo Teaha then shared details of recent developments at his firm, Teaha Management Consulting SRL, in Romania.
