What is meant by res judicata is described quite well by this old Roman legal principle: Contra rem iudicatam non audietur – against a decided matter one is not heard. Judicial decisions should be unappealable as of a certain date in order to establish legal peace and legal certainty. A judicial decision is always final if there is no legal remedy available to challenge the decision. Appeal and revision are available against a penalty order of the local court. If the time limit for filing an appeal has expired, the penalty judgment becomes legally binding – it is final.

When does the penalty order become legally binding??

There is only one legal remedy to challenge a penalty order – an appeal. If the objection is not lodged within the 2-week period, the penalty order is equivalent to a final judgment, as can be read in §410 Para. 3 Code of Criminal Procedure. After expiration of the objection period, the penalty order is legally binding, since it cannot be appealed. The legal remedies of appeal or revision are also excluded.

A super-rich U.S. man is funding an Israeli newspaper that its critics say represents the interests of one person above all others: Israel's prime minister

It is interference in Israel's "internal affairs" when other countries donate to Israeli non-governmental organizations; it must be disclosed and, better yet, limited. At least that's what Benjamin Netanyahu, the country's prime minister, thinks, and is calling for tougher laws. When it comes to financial support from private individuals, he doesn't see it so closely.

SUV costs tax deductibly: Tips for employees and the self-employed

SUV costs are a large item in the expenses of employees and the self-employed. Even though the biggest item is acquisition costs, recurring expenses should not be underestimated. Many professionals can deduct these expenses from their taxes on a pro-rata basis and reduce their tax burden by taking credit for these expenses. But very few people make use of this in their private vehicles.

Which costs are tax deductible and in which amount?

Tax deduction options are based on percentage of business use. In order to qualify for a tax credit, at least 50% of the SUV must be used for business purposes by self-employed persons and between 10% and 50% by employees. Business use includes, for example, daily travel to work, as well as business trips in a private vehicle. If a self-employed person uses the privately purchased SUV more than 50% for business trips, it is automatically classified as business assets.
