What about my donation receipt?

Apologies for not conforming to the stereotypes about German bureaucracy – but issuing donation receipts is actually no longer necessary for smaller donations…!

Donations up to €300
There is absolutely no need for a donation receipt anymore!
Your payment slip /bank statement is sufficient proof in your tax return – see EStDV §50 (4) 2.

Donations above €300
The club can issue a tax-deductible donation receipt for your donation. Please provide our treasurer with the following info – either in your bank transfer, or by email:

  • your email address (required to send you your tax-deductible donation receipt as PDF file)

  • your full mailing address (the donation receipt needs to state your full name and address)
