    FEES STRUCTURE

    In order to enable as many children as possible to access our educational programmes, Phorms tuition fees are income-based.

    The monthly tuition fee in the school year 2017/18 will be calculated based on the annual gross income of 2015. The tuition fee will be adapted for each school year, i.e. for the school year 2018/19 the annual gross income of 2016 will be used to calculate the tuition fee, for 2019/20 the income of 2017 and so on.

    TAX DEDUCTION

    The tuition fees for crèche and kindergarten are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses, but only if the child lives in the same household as the parent. In a single-parent family, if the parent is working, or if both parents are working in a two-parent family, two thirds of the child care expenses can be stated as work-related child care costs up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child and can be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income. This does not apply to expenses which are related to extracurricular activities or tuition for special talents, or expenses for sporting and leisure activities.

    30% of the school fees for primary and secondary school are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses. This does not include accommodation, day care or food costs for the child. Since 2008, the tax authorities have stipulated that 5,000 Euros is the maximum amount possible for tax reduction for extraordinary expenses. This means that parents cannot deduct more than 5,000 Euros per child (30% of 16,667 Euros) for school fees from their tax liability (§ 10 Paragraph 1 Clause 9 of German Income Tax Act, Special Expenses).

    Day care costs (e.g. Phorms morning care and Phorms afternoon programme, but not external clubs) are also tax deductible as work-related child care costs. The child must live in the same household as the parent and must be under 14 years of age. In a single-parent family, if the parent is working, or if both parents are working in a two-parent family, two thirds of the child care expenses can be stated as work-related child care costs up to a maximum amount of 4.000 Euros per child and can be deducted as operating costs when determining the gross family income. This does not apply to expenses which are related to extracurricular activities or tuition for special talents, or expenses for sporting and leisure activities.
