Certification of tax-related matters - issuance (formerly referred to as clearance certificate)

Certification of tax-related matters is issued by the competent tax office upon application.

It is intended for presentation to authorities, as well as public and private customers.

The content of the certificate is limited to an objective statement of tax-related factors such as
• existing tax arrears,
• payment behaviour, or
• the taxpayer’s compliance with tax declaration duties.

The certificate refers to the current status at the time it is issued, and the applicant’s conduct in the past is also taken into account. Any judgement of the certified tax-related conduct shall be under the authority of the individual to whom it is presented by the taxpayer.

The certificate is sent only to the taxpayer or an authorised representative (e. g. managing director, executive).

The certificate is issued in a bi-lingual version comprising German and English.

Prerequisites

  • No prerequisites

Documents required

  • Completed application

Fees

The applicable fee is EUR 17.90 per application. The fee must be paid on-site by EC card, or paid in advance by bank transfer.

If the certificate is issued for a purpose that is predominantly in the public interest (e. g. when applying for public contracts), this fee may be waived upon consideration by the tax office.

For this purpose it must be stated in the application, what is the purpose of the certificate and who it will be presented to. If no such information is included, it is assumed that fee obligations apply.
