VAT relief for businesses affected by the flood and aid workers

In mid-July, severe storms hit large parts of Germany and caused enormous damage. The regions worst affected were in Rhineland-Palatinate and North Rhine-Westphalia, but also in Bavaria and Saxony. The tax authorities have reacted to this disaster by means of the introduction of a variety of equitable regulations. This should at least mitigate the financial damage caused to affected businesses. In addition, the enormous willingness of companies to help with the disaster relief is to be promoted by refraining from taxing supplies carried out free of charge and the adjustment, for a limited period of time, of input VAT in accordance with sec. 15a of the German VAT Act.
