German term or phrase:Vid. Geb. s. Stpl., Schreibgeb. u. Ust.
This phrase appears at the top of of a copy of an Austrian birth certificate. I believe that Schreibgeb. u. Ust. means copying fee and sales tax (VAT). I need help on the first four abbreviations above.
I believe that Geb. stands for Gebuehr in this context. So the phrase would mean: For certification charge see stamp, copying fee and sales tax ... There is a revenue stamp at the top of the document, so that is why I think Geb. stands for Gebuehr in this case. The stamp is for 1 Schilling.Perhaps it would have been clearer if I had provided that information. However, when I started out I had no idea what these abbreviations meant. So I remain very thankful to you.
