I'm afraid this won't be much help...


Explanation:
You do have some interesting abbreviations...

Acc. to Duden, WB der Abkürzungen, WKZ - Wagniskennziffer. That doesn't work - gender would be wrong in the sentence you quote.
Währungskennzeichen - currency symbol or maybe currency ID - might work, but I'm not sure because DM is mentioned in your sentence.

I was also thinking along the lines of Z = Ziel (gender would be correct), and WK might be Werbungskosten (that's the only term listed by Duden, Abkürzungen, for WK that fits even remotely into your context).

I still do think, though, that it probably is Währungskennzeichen; maybe you can figure it out from the rest of the text?



WKZ = WährungsKennZeichen. Internationale Abkürzung
der Währungen. zB, ATS = Austrian Schilling. ...
