Tax burden GmbH Germany

In Germany, every company pays a corporate tax of 15 percent (Korperschaftsteuer). This percentage will be increased by a solidarity surcharge of 0.825, bringing the total rate to 15.825%.

In addition, each company must pay tax to the municipality where the company is located (Gewerbesteuer). On average, this percentage is 14-15%. In total, the tax burden for a GmbH is therefore approximately 30%. The Gewerbesteuer differs per municipality. The method for calculating this Rifle Driver is as follows:

Profit to which the Gewerbesteuer applies x 3.5% x local percentage. (per municipality)

The rates (percentages) for the Gewerbesteuer are available per state and per municipality on this website of the DIHK and are around 400-450.
