Reconciliation of payments and revenues

48 companies from the sectors lignite, natural gas, crude oil, potash, salts (including industrial coal) and quarried natural resources were identified and invited to participate in D-EITI. Twelve groups of companies, with a coverage of around 90% for the lignite, natural gas, oil and potash sectors participated in the initiative and reported in the following payment flows so far: Corporate tax, minesite and extraction royalties, trade tax, lease payments. These payments were reported above a threshold of 100.000,00 € for the accounting year 2016.

The reported corporation tax and minesite- and extraction royalties have been reconciled with the corresponding revenues from the public authorities . For that reason participating companies have exempted public authorities from tax secrecy.

The payments made by companies for trade tax and lease payments were not reconciled with government revenues for 2016.

The reference value for the determination of the sectors potash, salts (including industrial coal) is the useable quantity of 2015.

The reports on the cash flows of corporation tax and trade tax illustrate the high relevance of consolidated tax groups in Germany. In these cases, if the main activity of the consolidated tax group does not involve the extraction of natural resources, the details of the taxes paid by the parent company can be omitted (cf. footnote 3 and table `Reported company data` above). On the other hand, if the consolidated tax group is mainly active in the extractive industry, a report (on a pro rata basis and/or complete) of the taxes paid by the parent company is required (cf. footnote 2 in table `Reported company data` above).


Exemplary trade tax payments reconciliation

With regard to the reconciliation of payments for trade taxation, the MSG has refrained from a general payment reconciliation of the reported trade taxes, against the background of the federal system in Germany and the many municipalities which can be considered as payment recipients ( cf. the explanations in Chapter 9. a.iii. ). The implementation of an exemplary payment reconciliation of trade tax payments was resolved, for which esco - european salt company GmbH & Co. KG of Hanover volunteered to make itself available. The following overview shows the results of this payment reconciliation:
