Submit separate and uniform determination of bases of taxation for foreign special investment funds Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Since 1.1.2018, investment funds have been subject to tax with their domestic investment income, domestic real estate income and other domestic income to corporate income tax. The tax bases of foreign special investment funds and their investors are generally determined by the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt). Special investment funds must prepare a declaration for separate and uniform determination after the end of the financial year and submit it to the BZSt. Notice: In the case of domestic special investment funds and foreign special investment funds whose income that is taxable in Germany is not subject to withholding tax either exclusively or in part, the declaration must be submitted to the locally competent tax office. The BZSt is only responsible for foreign special investment funds whose income that is taxable in Germany is fully subject to withholding tax or which do not generate any income that is taxable in Germany.

In the declaration for the declaratory procedure, you must submit: annual report or the annual financial statements and the management report in each case for the past financial year in the case of a distribution: a binding decision by the management company on the use of the income Sales prospectus (if a sales prospectus has been prepared) Unit register Reconciliation statement showing how the bases of taxation were determined from the commercial or investment law accounts Lists of totals and balances showing the composition of the income and income-related expenses of the special investment fund Documents on the allocation of income to the individual investors
