German term or phrase: Abbreviation NM
From the same chart of accounts: "Erlöse Dienstleistungen 16% USt. NM" The only thing I can think of for NM is Nachmieter, but that makes no sense. Any advice, in German or English, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Explanation:
Some of these abbreviations may be difficult to resolve, at least via dictionaries and Internet search engines (I came up with nothing). Schedule permitting, find several homepages of suitable German/Swiss/Austrian organizations (accounting firms? banks? university economics departments?)and email your question(s) to their respective contact, using the "contact" box on the respective homepages. At least one out of several is likely to respond, and it usually doesn't last long (say overnight) allowing for the start of the European workweek. You probably want to phrase your question in German and ask for both meaning and (only if available) English translation. Another idea is to phone US or German offices of big accounting/consulting firms. I've done this sort of thing, though not in this subject -- even called Fermilab once on a particle physics question and got an excellent (and comprehensible) answer from a physicist there within minutes, after getting nowhere with a couple of universities.

Excellent advice, Tom. Thank you. The answer turned out to be "New Media," which I found out by calling someone I knew at a company which was listed next to the abbreviation. Your advice inspired that contact and is a simple (and accordingly elegant) solution. I'll be trying that more often in the future. - Will

Neumarkt ? Nachmarkt?


Explanation:
Duden, Wörterbuch der Abkürzungen gives a number of definitions: Nennmaß or Neumarkt (with the explanation "Kfz" in parens.) or Normenstelle Marine. The others, nautical mile, and New Mexico, are even further off base... In looking through Zahn, I ran across "nationaler Markt" (albeit not in connection with that abbreviation). Looking at your context (what little there is...) it would appear that the M could very well stand for Markt. Possibly Nachmarkt? Hope this helps a bit...

Explanation:
A little more context, such as what type of company this is, might be helpful. For NM: could it be Nichtmitglied or Nichtmitgliedsstaat? Just a guess.

Neuer Markt


Explanation:
These abbreviations may have only strictly internal company meanings which might explain why we are not doing very well at finding them anywhere. It is difficult to get two nouns together unless it is some sort of name, like marcushm said perhaps "Neuer Markt" (which is the only spelling of the name copyrighted in the US, so the ending of "Neu…" does not change when we write about it in English). Maybe your company renders some service to the Neuer Markt.
