The latest news and information worth using from taxes, law, accounting and business management new every month.
Averting abusive tax structuring and the necessary adaptations of German tax laws to bring them into line with court judgements were the reasons behind the publication, on 8.5.2019, by the Federal Ministry of Finance (Bundesministerium der Finanzen, BMF) of a draft bill for the proposed “Act to promote further tax incentives for electromobility and to amend other tax regulations”. We already discussed the tax incentives for electromobility in our PKF Newsletter 6/2019. Other signiﬁcant new regulations are set out below, in particular those relating to VAT. In addition, we have provided information on the afﬁliation privilege for trade tax purposes, real estate transfer tax in the case of share deals and subsistence expenses.
