Establishment of the firm

Westerfelhaus is a medium-sized partnership, operating both nationally an internationally, with a history spanning over 60 years. This is testimony to the depth of experience in the areas of expertise we offer.

Prof. Dr. oec. Herwarth Westerfelhaus opened his own office in September 1958. Shortly afterwards, he founded a firm of auditors and tax consultants together with Dipl.-Kfm. Werner Indiestel, and in the years that followed, this business developed step by step. The firm’s founders have always arranged the succession of partners in good time so as to ensure continuity in terms of expertise, personnel and quality of advice for the clients we serve. Prof. Dr. oec. Herwarth Westerfelhaus passed away on 27 April 2014. In 2016, the firm was converted into a partnership.

As an honorary professor of the Faculty of Economics at Bielefeld University, Prof. Dr. oec. Herwarth Westerfelhaus also passed on his knowledge and experience to young students for many years.

Our long history of working in the field of auditing and tax consultancy has created a wealth of valuable experience on which we can draw, and which is constantly evolving. This is reflected in our philosophy “Standing still is going backwards”.
