Payment in installments

The course fee can be paid separately in up to four installments. Attention: an additional surcharge for each installment payment will be added . The payment in installments gives participiants the opportunity to deduct the course fee from your taxes over a period of 3 years. For more details please contact our program team.

In Austria, employees can claim the expenses for vocational training and further training as income-related expenses within the scope of employee assessment. Depending upon height of the income up to 50% of the costs of further training are refunded. Self-employed persons have the opportunity to declare expenses for further training as business expenses in their income tax return.
For companies, training costs as business expenses reduce the taxable base. In addition, either a training allowance in the amount of 20% of the training costs or a training premium in the amount of 6% can be claimed.
