  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:   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 :   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: to check who is streaming or where you can buy a title you are looking for.

  9. We will finally buy a TV

    Gambatte you also mentioned Dokus, a less know streaming app is Curiosity. It only has Dokus and if you don't care about 4K they still have an offer for 12 USD for a year until 16.1   The app is also available for Smart TVs, Fire TV etc.
