Welcome to Paperpilot...

We at PAPERPILOT want to assist our clients in setting up and maintaining their structures in such a way, that they know all their administration is in compliance with the company’s act and that there are no loose ends. Just like our slogan says: FROM THE GROUND UP – and hopefully reaching new heights!

Awesome Features

The rationale behind our name is a play on the role of an actual pilot and particularly:
'guidance', 'speed', 'being in control' and 'expertise'.
The objective with the logo was to show sophistication without being too serious and old-rules in a fresh/good/modern way. Our service is not run of the mill and we want our brand to exhibit this.
