  1. Car accident choose repair

    because it is Friday...     So Gutachter sent his estimation and it comes to 3k€ - he even took pictures to tire (which got sracthed) and now computing two new tires, I even't had seen it. will check if the other guy insurance has a problem with it, hopefully not and will be the end of it.

    I think the same, and I owe some nice Kuchen to my neighboor because with this attitude I start to believe that the guy would have left the scene had she not stopped him and called the police although this is only my supposition.   Update: Today the Car dealder sent a "Gutachter" from TüV to check the vehicle, he will do a report to the dealder and the insurance, so I hope it will be the end of it. This guy was also a character trying to sell me on his "Bekannter Anwalt"... so far I do not see the need for laywer up, until the other guy insurance doesn't accept the evaluation...   I guess it is some drama during the boring days of home-office...
  3. Car accident choose repair

    Thank you, that was what was making sense in my mind...  The way the guy spoke is like I am a complete illiterate that don't understand the Regeln but yes, I will contact his insurance again and explain I do not want to deal with the guy anymore, they can sort the stuff with themselves     Thank you, I will report how this sitcom ends    
  4. Car accident choose repair

    Hello Apologies but I couldn't find a similar thread during search although I remember reading similar post.   On Saturday here was someone hit my car. I was parked correctly and he miss judged the angle and scratched front bumper quite badly (I see a parking sensor from outside...)   Now luckily a neighbour watched the scene took pictures and called police. I got surprised by he police knocking on my door for my details... Got he unfallkarte from police and everything... The "offender" had gone and left a paper notice on windshield once he knew police was coming...   Police advised us to call him for his insurance details and now the soap opera starts...   On Saturday evening he says we don't need his insurance details that it was a minor thing and to send him the Rechnung... And hung up. We found strange but on Sunday morning called our insurance and they said hey can take note and on Monday to try again otherwise they could do a search for his insurance..   Monday morning we get contacted by an Allianz broker saying the "offender" had thought better and to send some pictures of the damage and the expected costs... We mentioned we want to go to an official brand dealer as the car is 3years old he said no problem and even said if I needed a substitute vehicle to tell the total costs, they will pay. Due to covid situation I am still waiting for the appointment with the dealer to get the car checked     Now today evening the "offender" called me (literally 20min ago) and saying that he knows a very good garage and I have to cancel the appointment with the dealer as he wants to pay himself and he was really "pushy" even when I said I need to check who had the right to choose the garage... He gave me the number of the shop but I said I want to go to official dealer he kept saying "nein ich sagen sie ab... Ich werde es zahlen und kann werkstatt wählen... Ich will nicht doppelt zahlen" Or something like that...   I said I will first clarify who has the right to this and that his insurance (who has pictures of the damage) can also make their evaluation although they told us they are fine with going to the official dealer...     I don't want to deal with the guy again (although he lives quite near) so tomorrow I plan to contact his insurance clarify that they need to align with their customer... But am I entitled to choose the car to be repaired in official dealer or not?
  5. Demotion / degradierung

      Well it can be that employee wants to reevaluate career path. maybe because of Peter's principle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_principle   I was wondering exactly because this is the first question it comes to mind, and even now it might be seen as a failure. I've heard this happen in other countries (employer enforced demotion) but would/could the work atmosphere be kept healthy?  
  6. Demotion / degradierung

    Hi,   Was just wondering if anyone has experience or views on the long term consequences of a demotion at work in Germany. Do you have any experiences to share or know of close cases?   I am wondering particularly on your views if he demotion comes from he employee's side      
  7. Download all Lohnsteuerbescheinigungen

    If you're an employee chances are that your employer submitted your income electronically and there is a way to get this from Elster (Bescheid aufrufen) you will need a code sent home fir verification.   I haven't tried the service myself
  8. Thank you for the detailed explanation as always, yes, for me it was also a surprise that there is such difference between the online and hard-copy version, nevertheless in the end I haven't put this information anywhere in the tax return formular (as already described it is not necessary) and the FA correctly detailed it and used for calculation of final tax amount.   one less doubt for next year      
  9. Hello @Straightpoop thank you for your answer   maybe I haven't explained myself correctly, in fact I was speaking about the electronic bescheid I have received by Elsteronline. There was no mention to the advanced payments.   Today I got the hard copy on my mailbox, there is one additional line in the summary: bereits getilgt < this has the sum of advanced payments I have done during last year, and the value is correctly subtracted then to the total amount of taxes due.   Before this hard copy, it is true that there is no mention about this at all, however in this copy everything is made crystal clear.    
  10. I will just answer here before opening a new thread.   I finally received the Steuerbescheid for 2019 and I would like to see where do they account for the advanced payments (Vorauszahlung) I have made.   I am an employee (no self employed) and in the bescheid I just see. Amount of taxes according to income Amount already taken by employer Remaining payment.   I can't see any mention to previously paid amount. Shouldn't this be a separate item in the Bescheid?
  11. Just to add a question a friend had a couple of weeks ago. What happens to work insurance, travel to and from work and work related claims if claimed from another country?    I have been abroad temporarily but then there's a form to indicate I am on a business trip, but how would it be if one's home office coffee spill requires foreign cover?    Hope I am not diverging the topic, in my view they are related
