Die Vermögenssteuer - ein Comeback in der Krise? Oder: Wie importieren wir die Krise auch zu uns?
AbstractFamily entrepreneurs in all honesty cannot grasp this new concept. Just now, while we are still experiencing a worldwide financial and economic crisis, which has by no means been overcome yet, there is talk of increasing taxation of assets. In recent years, small and medium-sized and larger family-run companies have succeeded in improving their equity ratio. This helped weathering the crisis better, allowed us to hold on to key specialists in our workforce and made us become more independent of a banking industry shaken to its core. And now, of all times, models are discussed to once again withdraw equity and the ability to place investments from German companies, whether directly or indirectly. Unfortunately, the people proposing these models work with smoke and mirrors that may mislead the less informed public. Even a 1 or 1.5 % tax or levy on assets will result in an explosion of the accumulated fiscal burden on a company’s income of additionally approx. 20 %, especially since the proposed new taxes are only to be paid from profits. Excessive taxation is therefore more or less preprogrammed. Does anyone really consider the way ahead if one of the last locomotives of the European economy is thus slowed down economically?
