Pilots and flight attendants have very little time and travel the whole world. We have made these circumstances our speciality. With Lohnlotse e.V. pilots and flight attendants can claim your tax returns from anywhere in the world. Our team recognize the particularities of pilots and flight attendants to gain the maximum of your tax return. We determine all travel expenses and push them through with the tax authorities (especially “double journeys”, per diem allowances during your absence from home, etc.).
We are also very familiar with foreign income, international taxation, double taxation agreements (DBA regulations), the so-called 60/40 regulation and cross-border commuters.
We also know how to explain correctly the particularities of shuttle with foreign and domestic residences, double housekeeping, standby accommodation for the tax authorities, so that the maximum of tax refund can be achieved. We are very familiar with special features that have to be observed, for example, at the tax office for large companies in Hamburg. Of course, we are also acquainted with the deductibility of the home office (study). We know that many tax offices are often at odds with each other, especially in recognition of the workroom of “normal” flight attendants. We make sure that you get your rights and money. Our special knowledge can certainly be written into several books. But we do not want to bore you at this point. Just let us take care of you and convince yourself, as many of your colleagues have already done.

On January 1, 2014, the legal system changed with regards to travel expenses, as the term describing the first workplace was newly defined.
Travel expenses for trips to and from the workplace that are submitted by flight staff are now often declined and only the commuting allowance is taken into account.
Similarly, per diem allowances are also not always recognised from the time of leaving the house onwards, but only the employer’s reimbursements. On-Block – Off-Block
We continue to advocate the legal opinion that flight staff is entitled to all travel expenses.
After reviewing the legal norm we have found good arguments to fight for travel expenses in opposition proceedings and have achieved successful outcomes to date.
If you are interested in opposition proceedings and our consultation, we are happy to help you – please contact us!
If you have already received your tax assessment, please note the four-week objection period!
We look forward to hearing from you!
