Increasing numbers of German municipalities are following the example of cities around the world by imposing an accommodation tax on visitors who stay in the city for personal reasons. The courts have repeatedly ruled that accommodation for business purposes is completely exempt from such taxes. That means business travellers can save up to 7.5 percent on the cost of accommodation – depending on the city. As a business traveller, you can secure an exemption from such taxes.
BUT: In some cities accommodation billed to a company is automatically exempt. However, in others specific documents have to be provided to the hotel. This website will help you achieve an exemption with a secure legal basis. It offers clear explanations and current templates for the necessary documents.
