Notes for the calculation

1. Zakat on cash and bank balances

Zakat is 2,5% of the cash reserve and bank balance (savings account, giro account etc.) The amount should, strictly speaking, be one lunar year on the account, respectively in your possession. As a rule, the money on account changes. The amount is to be determined after best discretion. Best way is to pay the zakat on the amount at the appointed date.

2. Zakat at given loans etc.

Under the obligation of zakat are loans which are granted to friends and relatives. These loans are to be regarded as cash. The loans, which have to be payed by oneself are to be deducted. The net amount is under the obligation of zakat. If you are not sure if you are going to get the money back, it must not be counted as assets. It can added to assets as soon as the money is received.

Under the obligation of zakat are all state securities, municipal loans, payed insurance premiums, contribution to provident funds, short-term government securities etc.

3. Zakat on owned property

Zakat will not be payed on the own residential house, even if they are several houses, as long as those are used to residential purposes. Zakat is also not obligated of own property, if it is rented. At this point the amount of properties also does not count. The income from rent is under the obligation of zakat after distraction of administrative and other expenses.

If you intend to sell those properties gainfully or as an investment, then you have to pay the zakat on the market value. Also you have to pay the zakat, if you change your intention during the course of the year and change the private utilization to a commercial one.

4. Zakat on trade goods

This apply only to professionals. The zakat has to be payed, independent of the business segment, to the whole TRADING STOCK. The value of the trading stock will be determined after the acquisition price. If there are bills receivable, (purchase on credit), must them be added to the calculation.

The amounts which must be payed to the purveyor and the payments for the storage of the goods at the appointed date must be deducted. Unsalable stocks have to be calculated to the terminal value, respectively to the deductible value. The value of damaged goods should also be determined after the terminal value.

The zakat is not due to operational buildings or machines, but should be payed upon the manufactured goods (the value of the finished product). At detail questions a competent scholarly person should be consulted.

5. Zakat on entrepreneurial partnership

Zakat can be payed from the company OR from the member of a company. If the company as a whole do not pay and a member of the company wishes to calculate his/her part, is the capital share and the loan share according to the last balance sheet to be used. The estimated share in profits is to be calculated for the time frame until the appointed date of the calculation.

This amount can only be estimated, since it is difficult to calculate the exact profit or loss before the end of a fiscal year.

6. Discount of liabilities

If you owe the government at the time of the calculation taxes, they can still be deducted before the net amount is determined. If you have taken out a loan at a person or institution and the amount not deducted above, the liabilities can be deducted at this point.

Only loans that were recorded for the obligated assets shall be deducted. Cars, houses, etc. are not included into the zakat obligation assets. Loans/mortgages that were taken for these purposes are, therefore, not be deducted.

7. Zakat on pure gold and gold jewelry

The zakat is 2,5% of the market value applicable on the respective reporting date (in our case the 1st Ramadan). Most scholars prefer the current market value and not the purchase price.

8. Zakat on silver

Pure silver, jewelry, utensils, decorative objects and household items including crockery and cutlery made of silver are under the obligation of zakat. 2,5% of the current market value will be calculated.

9. Exceeding the Nisab

Nisab is understood as the threshold to raise Zakat. Nisab defines the minimum on wealth, from where the obligation to pay Zakat begins. The Zakat threshold differs among the various assets (money from a wealth of 595 g silver value , gold from 85 g 21 carats, silver from 595 g, agricultural products ect. from a harvest of 653 kg) and is to be determined for each asset type. In order to identify nisab in Gold and silver, the cash will be calculated to the gold and silver. Paying zakat will be obligatory when the respective nisab is exceeded.

10. Zakat on agricultural goods

Agricultural products including fruit, commercially grown flowers, vegetables and grains are all under the obligation of zakat at the time of harvest. The end of one year as a calculation factor does not apply to agricultural products. If it can be harvested on the same agricultural area several times a year, then zakat must be paid according to the number of harvest, the time does not matter.

The zakat will be calculated in agreement like:

10% on the products from plants that are solely dependent on rainwater, and 5% on products from plants that are irrigated (canals, reservoirs, boreholes, open wells, etc.). For plants that are partly irrigated partly with rainwater, 7.5% of the products are under the obligation of zakat.

11. Zakat on animals

On grazing animals such as goats, sheep, cows, camels, horses, the Zakat is paid depending on the species (e.g. at sheep, the Zakat is sheep). Instead, the corresponding value of the money can be paid. Only grazing animals with the intention of reproduction are subject to the obligation of Zakat.
