Value added tax; application for a certificate for vocational training institutions and other teaching services
If you operate a vocational training institution and prepare for professions or examinations before a legal entity under public law, you can apply for a certificate from the district government responsible for you for VAT purposes.
This certificate must be presented to the tax office and generally leads to exemption from turnover tax for the services directly serving the educational purpose.
The exemption effect can also be extended to freelance lecturers working for your institution.
The granting of the certificate presupposes that you are properly preparing for a profession - this also includes further training in a profession - or for an examination before a legal person under public law.
Application forms are available from the competent government and can be downloaded under "Forms". The application must be submitted to the government in whose area the measures will be wholly or mainly carried out.
The application must be accompanied by the documents specified in the application form.
No deadlines need to be observed. The tax office responsible in each individual case will determine for which VAT assessments a certificate issued for past periods or its revocation is of significance.
Please select a location in "Localization" so that the address of the responsible authority can be filled in.
- There is a fee range of 25 - 600 Euro.
