  • The book­ing should be made by, and the invoice should be issued to, and ideally paid by the employer

    Your city tax exemp­tion on busi­ness trips

    City tax exemp­tion is quite simple: the taxes are only due for privately arranged trips. As soon as you are trav­el­ing for busi­ness reas­ons, the hotel can refrain from cal­cu­lat­ing and for­ward­ing the city tax to the municipality.

    BUT: The hotels are instruc­ted by the cit­ies to take the tax from the room bill only if it is clearly proven that the stay is for busi­ness reasons.

    Every city demands dif­fer­ent doc­u­ments, so you are exactly right here on this page. Here you will always find cur­rent inform­a­tion and tem­plates that allow you to sleep tax-free in each city.
