Income tax allowance

Invest your profits and benefit twice.

Use your tax allowance to save taxes

Entrepreneur and self-employed people can shelter parts of their profits from tax by investing in selected securities or assets

The maximum tax allowance amounts to 13% of company profits. If your profit is less than EUR 30.000, the tax allowance is automatically claimed, and you do not have to make any investments. If your profit exceeds EUR 30.000, you can claim a tax allowance of up to EUR 43.350 when investing accordingly, e.g. in eligible securities.  

  • Natural persons who derive income from business activities:
    • Business income
    • Self-employed income
    • Income from agriculture and forestry
  • In the case of partnerships (e.g. general or limited partnership), the partners can claim a tax allowance in the amount of their respective profit share.
  • The profit goes to a natural person
  • Business income
  • The profit is established on the basis of a statement of revenues and expenditures or balancing of accounts

Taxpayers using a non-calendar fiscal year on their books can claim the tax allowance earlier. Please talk to your tax advisor.
