German Business Panel

The German Business Panel is a long-term survey panel of the DFG-funded supraregional project “TRR 266 Accounting for Transparency”. The panel systematically and representatively surveys how companies ranging from Dax groups to solo self-employed persons assess questions on current issues. It also measures how the increasing provision of information and increasing regulation in the areas of accounting and taxation affect corporate decision-making and the public. As a comprehensive, long-term survey panel, it will provide data of unprecedented quality for research and help improve regulation and business.

Academic project leadership is provided by Area Accounting & Taxation professors Jannis Bischof, Dirk Simons and Johannes Voget. Professor Philipp Dörrenberg is involved as a Research Fellow for the area of corporate taxation. Dr. Davud Rostam-Afschar took over the management of the project in January 2020.
