Professional liability insurance:
The professional liability insurance for financial losses which is prescribed by paragraph 67 of the German tax adviser law StBerG is covered by HDI Versicherung AG, HDI-Platz 1, 30659 Hanover, Germany.
Geographical scope of the insurance:
- Europe, Turkey, Russian Federation and other states of the former Soviet Union as well as non-European sovereign territories of European states that are in the EU or the EEA: The insurance covers liability claims (1) which are claimed in the courts of these countries as well as (2) those which result from the violation or non-observance of the law of these countries.
- The insurance has worldwide coverage to the amount of the legally stipulated minimum coverage for liability claims resulting from the violation or non-observance of foreign law if these claims have their origin in business aid as it relates to tax matters pertaining to tax law and if the assignment was made on the basis of German law. In such cases the service obligation of the insurance is limited to four times the legally required minimum insurance amount. If the agreed contract coverage amount is lower than four times the legally required minimum insurance amount, the service obligation of the insuring party is limited to the agreed contract coverage amount.
- The insurance coverage does not take into account liability claims that arise from activities carried out through subsidiaries or branches or other information centres in foreign countries insofar as these are not included by special agreement.
