Charity Register

The Federal Central Tax Office is responsible for the tasks related to the Register of Charity Organisations, Parties, Voters’ Associations and Public Bodies (so called ‘Charity Register’) (section 5 (1) no. 47- new German Tax Administration Act (FVG)). The Charity Register includes all organisations that can receive donations which are allowable for the income tax of the donor. The Charity Register also includes foreign EU- and EEA-based charity organisations. The foreign organisations can file a registration to the BZSt for the assessment of the non-profit status and the subsequent inclusion in the Charity Register.
