SEPA Direct Debit Mandate: Automatic Payment of Taxes and Duties

You can have your taxes and duties automatically debited by the tax authorities by means of a SEPA direct debit mandate. This saves you time and money!

Taxes and duties are payable at certain times (due date). By participating in the SEPA Direct Debit Scheme, you are ensured that your payments of due taxes and levies are made to the tax authorities on time. The risk of collecting the payments is borne by the tax authorities. The correct purpose of payment is also automatically taken into account during collection. This saves you monitoring effort and any costs for individual transfers. Your account will be debited one day after the due date at the earliest.

You can cancel your participation in the SEPA Direct Debit Scheme at any time. In addition, you can demand reimbursement of the debited amount within eight weeks, beginning with the debit date. The conditions agreed with your bank apply.

A separate SEPA direct debit mandate must be submitted for each tax number.

If your bank account changes, you should also issue a new SEPA direct debit mandate to the tax authorities.
