German Investor Tax Reporting

The tax solution for mutual investment funds

Reduce risk and enable investors to take advantage of tax benefits with our Fund Reporting Solution

With the amendment of the German Investment Tax Act in 2018, the requirements for tax reporting for investment funds have fundamentally changed. In particular, the calculation and provision of tax-relevant key figures to fund investors, such as the equity participation rate, presents fund providers with the challenge of providing a suitable reporting solution for investment funds.

Effective and easily accessible tax reporting is crucial for the successful distribution of investment funds on the German market. It offers your clients the opportunity to sustainably increase the after-tax return on their investments by utilising the partial tax exemption. Our German Investor Tax Reporting helps you to fulfil tax requirements and provide your customers with transparent and reliable tax reporting.
