As part of the fiscal stimulus package for Germany, the German coalition committee has decided to reduce the value-added tax from July 01, 2020 through December 31, 2020. The VAT rates will generally be reduced from 19% to 16% and from 7% to 5%. The legal basis is the 2nd Corona Tax Assistance Act, which was passed by the German Federal Government on June 12, 2020.
