So does this mean that at the moment the Identifikationsnummer is NOT the only no. I need??? Do I still need to bother getting a steuernummer or will this magic personal ID number (which I received automatically after registering my address) be enough??
I have just started freelancing and my employer has asked me to give them my steuernummer...
Would appreciate not having to get another number if it's not needed though!!!
I would assume
that the new ID number is also your new "Steuernummer", however, I must admit the whole business is so confused that I'm not actually certain!.
I'm still a bit confused that my employer has not contacted me for my new "Steuernummer", but maybe it was also sent to them directly.
