Get exemp­ted as follows…

A sep­ar­ate cer­ti­fic­a­tion has to be com­pleted for each stay in Kleve that is strictly neces­sary for busi­ness reas­ons, and for each guest:



  • In Kleve you must provide appro­pri­ate doc­u­ment­a­tion as an “attache­ment” to the certification:

    • Inform­al employ­er cer­ti­fic­a­tion con­firm­ing that the stay “is strictly neces­sary for busi­ness reas­ons” (the state­ment should include the exact phrase “strictly neces­sary for busi­ness reas­ons”!) or
    • A copy of an accred­it­a­tion doc­u­ment for a con­gress, sem­in­ar, trade fair etc., or
    • Book­ing made by the employ­er or

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.
