The management of business tax can be very time-consuming. Inconsistent handling in the municipalities, numerous official responsibilities, the linking of chamber contributions (IHK and HWK) and a flood of notices: These factors alone make the management of business tax complex. If regular registrations, re-registrations and deregistrations of individual business premises, different apportionment scales and several companies to be looked after are added to the mix, tax managers are confronted with a time-consuming task that ties up a lot of their capacities. In addition, the pre-calculation of trade tax with different assessment rates is tricky.
