Tax refunds for the manufacturing sector

A so-called ‘tax cap’ under the §55 Energy and §10 Electricity Tax Act enables companies from the manufacturing sector to benefit from tax reductions in their electricity and energy taxes. However, since 2013 the provision of the top rate tax cut for companies from the manufacturing sector has required evidence of increased energy efficiency .

This evidence can either be in the form of a certified energy management system under DIN EN ISO 50001, an annual energy audit according to DIN EN 16247 or for SMEs through the implementation of an alternative system.

We help you decide which form of evidence is the most appropriate for your company. We then assist you in obtaining the tax cut by carrying out the required measures and preparing the necessary documents for submission.

Peak tax cap in practice

Sample calculation: A company from the manufacturing sector pays €12,505 in taxes on electricity (reimbursement under §9b StromStG has already been deducted). The company has 20 employees and pays €500,000 for them towards the federal pension fund.

With our services you can benefit from the tax cap refund, in this example you would receive over €11,700 from the state!
