Hello, and welcome to our online tax wizard!
You are a UK taxpayer or their representative, and you or your client are expecting to receive royalties from a German publisher. The recipients want to apply for relief from a 15% German tax on their royalties ("apply for German tax exemption").
Mohrbooks is your subagency for the German market. We are providing this online wizard to help you complete the German application form 010153. It will guide you through the questions and deliver a complete PDF as a result to you.
After completion, you will need to print the application, then have it certified and stamped by your UK tax authority in section IX of the form.
Once Mohrbooks has received the complete and stamped application by email or postal service, we will forward it to the German publisher. They will forward them to the German tax office for review.
The review can take several months and lead to more questions, especially if the applicant is a company.
If the exemption is granted it will be valid for 3 years. The German publisher will be notified and be able to pay full royalties without withholding any tax.
If you have any questions, please consult our website for further information (http://www.mohrbooks.com/tax-exemption/) or contact us.
With thanks and kind regards,
Mohrbooks Literary Agency
