Electricity and Energy Tax
Electricity and energy products such as natural gas, coal or mineral oils, are subject to a fixed tax rate. These are so-called consumption or quantity taxes. The legal basis can be found in the Electricity Tax Act [StromStG] and in the Energy Tax Act [EnergieStG]. The electricity tax as well as the surcharge on the energy tax (named the mineral oil tax until 2006) is also referred to as the “eco-tax”. The so-called ecological tax reform was introduced in 1999.
We examine, together with our customers, all options for reducing the electricity and energy tax burden. We also ensure that the deadlines for submitting refund applications are met.
Furthermore, some reimbursements require an energy management system. See also Management systems.
