City Tax Berlin

The accommodation tax has to be paid to the city of Berlin and amounts to 5% on the net overnight rate. It has to be paid by the accommodation company to the tax office. Only private overnight stays are taxed, limited to a consecutive overnight stay of 21 days.

Business travelers are excluded from the accommodation tax. In order to make use of the exception the guest has to provide a professional reason for the overnight stay until departure. In case of a non-provided tax statement the guest has to pay the tax at the hotel and has the option of applying to the tax office directly for reimbursement of the accommodation tax within four months of departure.

Please provide this employer confirmation in the hotel.
