However, an individual tax advice can avoid unnecessary burdens. Revenue from the photovoltaic plant are subject to value added tax the generated electricity into the public grid is fed, the photovoltaic system of sales tax revenues are subject to. Many private operators of such equipment but not more than 17,500 EUR annual turnover. You are as a so-called small-business owners to be classified, which are exempt from sales tax. However, it is useful to abandon this scheme and to log on as a sales taxable entrepreneur with the tax office.
