While the overall goal of PostgreSQL Europe is to break even, we did again see a net gain in 2017. It's lower than last year, because of the taxes we now pay.
We now have two savings accounts. They both act as a buffer to cover unexpected costs. The first one has not been used during 2017 since all events have generated satisfactory financial results (exceeding or hitting budget) due to good sponsor incomes. The only transaction in the account during 2017 was an interest income of 459.63€. As the events grow larger - PGConf.EU 2017 was our biggest event to date - and the number of events increase, the importance of this buffer remains.
Our administrative backend software, which powers both our financial reporting as well as the events, was again further improved ensuring safe operation of our events.
For the first time in PostgreSQL Europe history, we had to deal with taxes and VAT. It didn't come without issues.
In 2017, we charged VAT for some companies when we shouldn't have. For other companies, we haven't charged VAT when we should have. For the latter, we didn't ask them to pay. For the former, we reimbursed each company that gave us their bank information for us to transfer them the money. On the 14 companies, only 5 gave us their bank informations and got reimbursed.
In 2018, we charged VAT for american companies when we shouldn't have. All companies (5) have been reimbursed.
We should now have no more issues on VAT.
Important items are summarized here, but the full results report is also available.
 _Other_ includes consumables etc.
For once, we don't gain a lot. This mostly due to the payment of taxes and the payments to the accounting company.
