Speaking to the Financial Times, Josef Ackerman said it would be fairer for the organisation to distribute the levy throughout the business.
The comments follow an announcement by chancellor Alistair Darling that staff at UK banks will be required to pay a one-off 50 per cent tax on any bonuses above Â£25,000 ($40,700).
Mr Ackerman told the FT that the Deutsche Bank would âclearly globaliseâ the tax.
âIf parts are paid out of the bonus pool, we would seek to globalise it. It would be unfair to treat the UK bankers differently,â he explained.
The firmâs CEO added he was against the UK governmentâs decision to introduce the tax.
âBonuses should be the result of supply and demand for skilled people,â he stated.
The French government announced it is to follow the UK authorityâs lead and introduce a similar levy on banker bonuses.
