Questions and answers about tolls

The toll rates in Germany are laid down in the Bundesfernstraßenmautgesetz (German Federal Trunk Road Toll Act). The total amount is calculated by multiplying the distance travelled by a vehicle or vehicle combination on toll roads by the toll rate (cents/km). The toll rate includes a percentage for the air and noise pollution and infrastructure costs incurred.

The toll levy will be shown as a separate invoice item. In this way, trans-o-flex ensures transparency and emphasises that these are government charges that the company has to pay via its transport partners.

The toll charge is a levy under public law and is not subject to VAT for the person who pays it.
If the forwarding company charges its customers for the toll incurred, however, the corresponding amount is subject to VAT.
We therefore treat the tax liability in the same way as amounts invoiced for services rendered.
