CITY TAX LAUTERTAL

Save the City Tax in Lautertal when staying for business reasons

City Tax Lautertal

Lautertal imposed an accommodation tax on 1 January 2013. Travelling for business reasons is exempted.

 

  • The tax depends on the cost of accomodation per adult (excludes breakfast and other services)
    • Up to 30,00 € = 1,00 €
    • Up to 100,00 € = 2,00 €
    • 100,01 € and more = 3,00 €
  • Children under the age of 18 are exempt from the tax
  • The tax is applied for a maximum of seven consecutive nights. Further nighs (consecutive and at the same hotel) are not subject to the tax

Get exempted as follows…

  • The stay is not considered private if the guest can prove that they need the accommodation for business reasons by providing an employer certification, or in the case of freelancers, self-employed individuals and managing directors, if they provide appropriate documentation
  • The signed certification must contain:
    • Name of the guest
    • Period of stay and number of nights
    • Approval that the stay is for business reason
    • Name and address of employer or company or own address (freelancers)

Each certification is always valid for one stay; if you depart on a Friday and return on a Monday, then the guest and the hotelier are all equally pleased that a new certification has to be submitted and archived for ten years.

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.
