Aid measures for the catering industry in Austria extended

In order to secure as many jobs as possible and save companies, certain COVID aid measures for the catering industry have been extended in Austria:

  • Prolongation of the reduced tax rate of 5% in the areas of gastronomy, hotel and culture until December 31, 2021.
  • This reduced VAT of 5% should also be subject to all food and drinks in the area of gastronomy until December 31, 2021.

Reset of VAT in Germany

The normal tax rate in Germany was temporarily reduced to 16% until December 31, 2020, the reduced tax rate to 5%. In addition, the tax rate on meals was also reduced to 5% during this period.

Since this period is now coming to an end, restaurateurs will have to adjust the tax rates stored in the cash register system again at the end of December 31, 2020:

  • Resetting the normal tax rate to 19%
  • Resetting the reduced tax rate to 7%
  • Change in the tax rate on meals to 7% (up to and including June 30, 2021)
