Germany: billions EUR of tax money needlessly paid
Many independent and other drivers of company cars lead no logbook. The result of it, several billion EUR per year needlessly of paid income tax.
Easy more than 5,000. EUR per year too much income tax in Germany
Just expensive cars are over proportionate used as company cars. For example 62% of all Porsche. Can You imagine, that a possesor of Porsche drives up and starte to rummage for the ball point pen and logbook? Can You imagine, that he scrawls with the care of an accountant's journey purpose and trip reason? No! This is inconceivable. With a 125,000 EUR car, this hits with 15,000 - EUR of income tax addition amount to book.
With 80% of provable company use and 42% the highest tax sentence, this makes 5,040 EUR needlessly paid income tax.

The call for the electronic logbook assistant
More than a billion EUR needlessly paid taxes, simply because it is tiresome to write everything in the logbook. This shouts formally after an advertising campaign:
"Our product costs x EUR, makes fun, leads you always to the target and saves you y EUR of income tax because it helps You to lead a logbook according to the regulations of the German tax office".
However, only one manufacturer heard the call from the tax payers: Becker.
