Our history

Our firm was founded as a private limited company in 1979 by Dr. Heinz Merschmeier.

As one of the oldest auditing firms in Münster, we feel connected to the city, the traditions and the people here.

The origin of our firm goes back to the individual practice established in the twenties by Dr. jur. Dipl.-Kfm. Paul Schmidt, public appointed auditor for the canton of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, Münster.
