  1. Understanding freelance deductions

    Same here. And I also don't know the exact details. I just give the annual letter I receive with the amount I paid for the Insurance to the Steureberater  and i am done.
  2. Understanding freelance deductions

    Ah ok. It is complicated, f.ex if I am not mistaken, if you have a Rürup Renteversicherung in the beginning an amount of around 92% of the total is deductible and it increases yearly until it reaches 100% up to an amount. Again for details i think someone more knowledgeable can answer.   For health insurance i am pretty sure that it is not 100% deductible only a percentage, maybe  this can help: https://welcome-center-germany.com/health-insurance-for-self-employed-and-freelancers-in-germany   Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will answer you. 
  3. Understanding freelance deductions

    There are actually a lot of deductibles, depending on the line of freelancing work you do, the insurances you have, if you have a home office, tools/equipment for work, if you take german lessons, if you have a work car, etc etc. My advice is obviously get a tax advisor ( I use Expattax, that I found here, for the past 11 years with only possitive things to say) . To get a rough overview of possible deductibles check here f.ex : https://www.accountable.de/en/blog/7-handy-tax-deductions-for-freelancers-in-germany/   Good luck
  4. Cooking with Philadelphia cream cheese

    Mascarpone has about 40gr of fat, you can use if from a more decadent Cheesecake. It lacks on acidity in comparison to Cream Cheese but it's creamier. You can also mix Mascarpone with a 25-27gr Cream cheese and achieve a similar fat content with the american cream cheese.

  6. We will finally buy a TV

    Thank you Panda, I was about to export the Library list myself   It is good, many times more than one languages available and/or subtitles and lots of quality movies and dokus.   Another useful site (especially if you have many streaming services like I do), is this one: https://www.werstreamt.es/ to check who is streaming or where you can buy a title you are looking for.

  13. What are you listening to right now?

    The original song was released in 1966, this is the version that appeared on the "To the Bone" album in 1996. Gained a lot of popularity when it appeared in a mesmerizing scene on "Sopranos"
