Tuition Fees for Phorms Frankfurt Primary School

We want to offer many children the opportunity to access our educational services and have decided to use the model of income-based tuition fees.

Those fees are based on the gross annual income as well as any wage replacement benefits of the legal guardians from two years before start of school (e.g. for the school year 21/22 we look at the income tax statement of 2019). It is not possible to set off income against “negative income” (such as loss on rental income or leases).

Therefore, we kindly ask to submit your income statement from the calendar year before last each year - unless you wish to voluntarily pay the highest tuition fee of 1.100 €. The Phorms tuition fee is an annual contribution divided into twelve monthly payments. The first payment is due at the beginning of the school year on August 1th.

Note for new contracts from school year 2022/23: Because of expected cost increases for the school year 2022/23, we must assume a moderate adjustment of the tuition fees. We would like to inform you that you will receive the final monthly tuition fee with an offer of a school contract.

The income-based tuition fees do not include extra charges for food, school materials and field trips as well as early morning or afterschool care, school bus or holiday camps which need to be booked separately.

Method of Payment

Tuition fees, lunch money, school bus and early or afternoon childcare are payable in 12 monthly payments.

All fees due will be debited directly from a bank account. Payments are due in advance and will be debited on the first workday of the month. The bill will be sent out by e-mail.

Tax Deductability

30% of school fees for Primary Schools and Secondary Schools are tax deductible as extraordinary expenses. This does not include accommodation, day care or food charges for the child. Since 2008, a maximum amount of 5,000 Euros has been stipulated. This means that parents may not deduct more than 5,000 Euros per child (30% of 16,667 Euros) from their tax liability for school fees paid (§ 10 Paragraph 1 Clause 9 of German Income Tax Act, Special Expenses).

The cost of childcare (Hort) is seen as a care expense and up to two-thirds of the amount (not exceeding €4000 per child) can be claimed as an extraordinary expense on the income tax return (§ 10 Abs. 1 Nr. 5 EStG Sonderausgaben – in the German tax law). Exempt are costs for lessons, instruction in certain skills, as well as sporting and other free-time activities. The requirement is that the child lives in the same household as the tax payer and has not reached the age of 15.

Contributions to the Friends’ Association are also tax deductible within the context of the provision for tuition fees. 

Phorms Education cannot accept any liability for the accuracy of the above information. Parents should discuss all matters directly with their tax consultant.
