Repayment of credit

For cross-border payments within the European Economic Area, the IBAN and BIC are required in addition to the name and sort code. Repayment cannot be made if these data are not provided in full. In order to complete foreign transfers, it is therefore advisable to always state the financial institution’s IBAN and BIC details or to record these details in the application form in the case of new applications.


All entries must be submitted in German, since, in principle, German is the national and official language in Austria (Art 8 Bundes-Verfassungsgesetz).

Persons authorised to represent partnerships

In order to process submissions from partnerships, the tax office needs an 'authorised person' as a contact person within the meaning of Section 81 of the Bundesabgabenordnung (BAO). This person can be an appointed director or a shareholder, but also a third person (e.g. professional party representative, for instance a tax consultant or lawyer), who has been named as a common authorised recipient for shareholders in dealings with the tax office. From this point on (in accordance with the provisions of Section 101 of the BAO), written notices from the tax office can be sent with effect for all those involved to this person, until the partnership appoints another person as an authorised representative. In order to expedite proceedings, this should be taken into account by partnerships as early as in their initial contact with the tax office.
