Reduction of the VAT to 5% in Austria

Inquire now
On June 12, 2020, the Austrian government announced further measures to support special companies in the corona crisis. For this reason, it is planned to reduce the VAT for gastronomy, culture and the media to five percent until December 31, 2020.

Short-term changeover on July 1, 2020 brings challenges

The reduced tax rate should apply from July 1, 2020 and is limited until the end of the year.

The Austrian cash register directive “RKS-V” does not currently provide for an explicit 5% VAT rate. Sales with 5% VAT can therefore be assigned to the 0% rate.
