Submit separate and uniform assessment of tax bases for foreign special investment funds

Investment funds are subject to corporate income tax on their

  • domestic investment income,
  • domestic real estate income and
  • other domestic income.

Special investment funds are special investment funds for institutional investors that meet statutory investment requirements.

The tax bases of foreign special investment funds and their investors are generally determined by the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt). After the end of the financial year, special investment funds must prepare a declaration of separate and uniform assessment and submit it to the BZSt.

The declaration for the separate and uniform assessment of foreign special investment funds must be made by

  • the domestic or foreign management company or
  • the domestic investor

Note: In the case of domestic special investment funds and foreign special investment funds whose income taxable in Germany is exclusively or partially not subject to withholding tax, the declaration must be submitted to the locally competent tax office. The BZSt is only responsible for foreign special investment funds whose income taxable in Germany is fully subject to withholding tax or which do not generate any income taxable in Germany.
