The discovery of a Higgs boson in 2012 offers a new opportunity to explore physics beyond the Standard Model. Measuring the properties of the discovered Higgs boson and comparing the results to theory predictions can shed light on the underlying theory of nature. High experimental accuracy but also precise theoretical input are needed for this endeavour.

In the talk, I will especially focus on the precise calculation of the Higgs decay to four fermions in the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model implemented in the software tool PROPHECY4F and discuss the necessity of properly defining the corresponding parameters and the prospects of finding signs of the Two-Higgs-Doublet Model via this Higgs decay channel.
