FROM January 1, international goods traffic travelling by road in Germany will be exempted from transport tax. It will no longer be necessary to pay 0.75 Pf/tkm for the German leg of a journey in the course of international carriage of goods by road. This follows the abolition of' the tax on turnover.
It is replaced by a tax on added value (TVA), which is not levied on international road transport.
