Since   01/01/2009,   withholding   tax   is   applicable   in   Germany.   This   tax   is   being   deducted   as   PAYE-tax   relating   to   capital   yields   directly   by   a   banking   institution,   and   is   being   paid anonymously.   Taxation   is   made   relating   to   capital   investments,   such   as   interest   yield,   dividends   and   market   rate   profits   relating   to   securities.   This   includes   shares   as   well   as fund-units,   bond   issues   and   subscription   warrants.   Tax   calculation   is   made   basing   on   a   fixed   tax-rate   of   25   %   plus   solidarity   surcharge   (5.5   %   of   withholding   tax),   and   church tax, if applicable (8 or 9 % of withholding tax) which is independent of the personal tax-rate of a debtor. The   Federal   Republic   of   Germany   closed   double-taxation   treaties   with   many   countries.   Accordingly,   the   specific   contents   can   be   different   for   almost   each   country.   In   some countries,   withholding   tax   and   PAYE-tax   are   also   deducted   and   paid   which   can   be   set-off,   partly   or   wholly.   German   withholding   tax   is   not   being   levied   abroad.   A   person   liable to pay tax is responsible himself for subsequently reporting any income to local tax authorities for taxation purposes. For   depot   accounts   which   are   opened   via   GI500,   withholding   tax   is   not   deducted.   The   customer   himself   has   to   include   it   in   his   annual   tax   return   by   attaching   a   transaction report.   As   a   result,   any   accumulated   speculation   profits   are   available   for   re-investment   during   the   entire   year.   This   provides   a   clear   advantage   compared   to   depot   accounts which are maintained by a house bank. Thus,   profits   can   be   set-off   against   losses.   However,   you   have   to   take   into   account   that   each   asset   class   is   calculated   separately.   Accordingly,   profits   from   share   transactions can   only   be   set-off   against   losses   incurred   by   sale   of   shares.   Losses   incurred   through   Forex   transactions   can,   however,   be   set-off   against   any   other   positive   capital   yield,   e.g. interest and dividends. If you have further questions, please contact your tax consultant. Information about your financial structure can be found in real-time in your depot.
