Draw up declaration of waiver of certification of old-age provision and basic pension contracts ("Riester" or "Rürup")
Source: Zuständigkeitsfinder Schleswig-Holstein (Linie6PLus)
The Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) is responsible for the certification of retirement provision and basic pension contracts.
Retirement provision and basic pension contracts must meet the relevant certification criteria in order to be eligible for a tax incentive. Providers of certified retirement and basic annuity contracts can waive certification for the future by submitting a waiver.
The waiver is published with its effective date in the Federal Tax Gazette and in the list of all certificates issued.
If an old-age provision or basic pension contract was concluded on the basis of a certificate before the waiver to this certificate became effective, the contract remains fully eligible. Even after a waiver, the provider's contractual obligations to existing customers remain in effect.
You make your declaration in writing to the certification office of the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt).
A retroactive waiver is not possible.
You must declare the waiver in writing to the certification office of the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt).
