The annual internal tax certificate delivered by CERN shows, for the previous year, the taxable amount for financial and family benefits paid by the Organization, as well as the amount of internal tax levied by the Organization during the same period, calculated with CERN scale.
The certificate is intended exclusively to the tax authorities in the context of income tax declarations.
|N.B.: Following contacts with the tax authorities, a new approach to the annual internal tax certificates will be introduced as of 2020, i.e. in respect of the tax year 2019. This procedure will be updated over the course of 2019. In the meantime additional information is available in the Frequently-Asked Questions.|
