With a few exceptions, our podcast is mainly in German. Enjoy one of our English episodes!

In this podcast episode, our host Prof. Dr. Florian Haase welcomes George Maina. He is based in our office in Nairobi and is responsible for our tax consulting services in Kenya.

George Maina gives deep insights into the structure of our Kenyan business and the tax services our African colleagues can offer.
In this context, our host and our invited tax expert talk about Kenyan tax peculiarities and the main challenges of German companies when entering and investing in the African market and what to consider in any case. Furthermore, George Maina explains the country’s perspective on current developments and hot topics such as Pillar 2.

In a humorous game at the end, George Maina lets the cat out of the bag and tells why he is more of a mover than a follower and what “pole pole” has to do with an tortoise. Finally, he explains what makes working at Rödl & Partner special for him.
