Tax de-registration or re-registration of a company

You have the fiscal obligation to inform the competent tax office immediately, if you are temporarily or permanently discontinuing any

  1. commercial activities,
  2. self-employed (freelance) activities,
  3. activities in the fields of agriculture or forestry,
  4. if you are terminating participation in a private company,
  5. if a corporation is liquidated,
  6. if an association is dissolved (e. g. construction or working committees).

In the case that a corporation, an association or assets are dissolved, such notification must be submitted within one month of the reportable event. The same applies in the case that the company management or offices are relocated.
For this purpose, a questionnaire for temporary or permanent de-registration or re-registration for tax purposes is provided by the financial authority for the federal state of Berlin. This template is also available from your competent tax office. To speed up the process, the template is available online for download.
