The Austrian Foundations

Experts consider the Austrian private foundations to be the most liberal in the range of legislative for the private foundations and generally provide the maximum advantages in taxation for the whole Europe.

In case, that you want to form and to realize a private foundation, then the donation is covered by a tax. The gift tax amounts 2.5 per cent in Austria. The land deposit into the private foundation is exempted thereof. The extra charge of 2 percentage points is vested here.

Thereby it is necessary to bear in mind, that these extremely low tax rates apply only for founders of a foundation. However, you should think on it, that in Germany the donation is ratable up to 70 per cent. If you would like to join more family members in the foundation, then these must be evidenced as donators since the very beginning. What is great thereon, that the competences of foundation bodies are defined up to the last detail.

There are several conditions to form the foundation. The single minimum deposit of property amounting EUR 75,000 is mandatory. The area for foundation purpose is not subjected to any restriction.
