About Taxes and Cancellation

Tax Savings

Under Austrian law, donations for the purposes of teaching and research made by private individuals (such as donations to the WU) may be tax-deductible, as long as the donation is not more than 10% of personal income. The WU is legally obliged to report the size of your donation to the tax office by the end of February of the following year at the latest. If you have an objection to such a report being sent, please inform us at alumni@wu.ac.at.

More information regarding the tax deductibility of donations can be found at: https://www.bmf.gv.at/steuern/selbststaendige-unternehmer/einkommensteuer/absetzbarkeit-spenden.html and https://www.bmf.gv.at/kampagnen/spendenservice.html.

Flexible Cancellation

Your annual donation is paid to the WU via SEPA transfer for as long as you wish. Of course, you can at any time choose to suspend the annual transfer, change the amount or indeed cancel the transaction completely. Just get in touch with the WU Alumni Office for further assistance.
