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.
