Help for Helpers

The willingness to help refugees is very high – as is the uncertainty among the helpers with regard to tax-related questions in connection to helping refugees. Our tax experts provide aid organisations and their leaders, volunteers and helpers with practically relevant answers to legal and tax-related questions related to helping refugees.

The Federal Ministry of Finance has issued special tax regulations that make it easier to help refugees in Germany.

  • In which circumstances can aid organisations issue donation receipts for money or items that have been donated? 
  • Can non-profit educational institutions provide free German lessons to refugees without any tax risks? 
  • What tax-related implications arise for cooperating hospitals from providing refugees with medical first aid at the reception camp?

Leaders and helpers for aid organisations receive answers to these and other practically relevant questions at our “Help for Helpers” events and in our videos on this page.
