As the dividend for the 2017 financial year is to be paid in full from the tax contribution account in accordance with § 27 Corporation Tax Act (Körperschaftsteuergesetz, KStG), (contributions other than into nominal capital), payment will be made without deducting capital gains tax or the solidarity surcharge.
