Transfer exemption amounts

Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)

Service Description

The exemption amounts are investment income that is exempt from tax deduction on the basis of an exemption order (FSA) or a non-assessment certificate (NVB). The notification only contains information on how much investment income was actually exempted. It is not possible to derive from the report how the exemption orders are distributed among the various credit institutions.
The Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) prepares the incoming data and can make it available to the state tax authorities and social security institutions.
They must report the exemption amounts electronically in the BZSt online portal (BOP).


Process flow

You must submit your data electronically via the BZSt online portal (BOP). To do this, you must first register in the BOP.

Note: If you already have an ELSTER certificate, you can also use this to log in to the BOP.

  • To register in the BOP, please send an e-mail to fsa-anfragen@bzst.bund.de and contact the relevant investment income department at the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt).
  • The BZSt will then send you a BZSt number by post and the BZSt secret by e-mail.
  • Once you have received your BZSt number and BZSt secret, you can start registering with the BOP. You will receive an e-mail with a link to confirm your data. You will then receive an activation ID by e-mail and an activation code by post.

  • For professional authorization for the exemption order control procedure (FSAK), you must apply for this online in the BOP using the form "Application for authorization for the exemption order control procedure (Section 45d (1) and (2) EStG)".
  • The BZSt will then send you an authorization number for the FSAK procedure by post or electronically
  • You then have three options for transmitting data to the FSAK procedure:
    • Delivery via BOP form
    • Delivery via BOP form using the CSV import function
    • Delivery via the ELMA5 mass data interface
