Abstract

This article contributes to the debate about Germany as a high or low tax country. The authors have conducted a survey among Swedish companies which have invested in Germany or Austria. The main finding is that the tax burden on a direct investment in Germany is perceived as high, whereas for Austria it is perceived as average. Germany does not owe its bad image to uninformed investors: respondents engaged in Germany feel more negative about the tax burden there than respondents without a German investment. Investors' estimates seem to be based on statutory rather than effective tax rates. Copyright 2007 die Autoren Journal compilation 2007, Verein für Socialpolitik und Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
