  1. Anmeldung in two different cities

    @vpberlin Thank you. For TTers, the forms for Berlin can be found here: Zweitwohnungsteuer
  2. Anmeldung in two different cities

      @PandaMunich Any thoughts?
  3. Objection to Company Transfer & Resignation

    Yes, eventually this is what happened. Contract conditions remained the same after the transfer
  4. Objection to Company Transfer & Resignation

    Yes, Option 3 did cross my mind, however, I am afraid of the negative connotation of being fired, and somehow that biting me back later (e.g. using unemployment benefits in context of citizenship application). Do you have experience regarding this concern? If I resign now, they can obviously not respect my notice of 31.May, rather let me go after 2 weeks, which leaves me a 2.5 week gap to the next job. Further info: I actually start a new job 01.June, so not so much gap to cover anyway. Worst-case I am without pay for 2.5 weeks, and perhaps have to pay insurance myself as well? Anything else?   ps. No, they cannot transfer me to wherever, although they can put me on any client. Even if they did for a month, I do not find that an issue in the worst-case
  5. My current German employer is selling our team (soft-merger) to another company in the US, and we have been issued a notice of transfer, which we must officially object to in case we would not like to be part of this -not that we have a *real* choice to do that. The current company will continue to exist in its legal form and everything and even develop some SW for the next couple of months, followed by a potential ramp down.   On the other hand, I have a 2-week termination notice per my current contract and do intend to resign with the last working day at the end of May. My question is (1) if I should resign now and object to transfer? OR (2) Do not object and resign on the 15th of May from the new company? For (1) above, the worry being that *advance* resign now could mean they just let me go in 2 weeks, even though I state in my resignation that the last working day would be end May. For (2) above, the worry being that I am not allowed to resign after transfer due to some crazy legal small print.   Please suggest.
  6. Anmeldung in two different cities

    Thanks, @jeba, I am aware. The question is if it were - basically extending the premise of discussion to other towns where it is, in fact, a must. Would you be able to share your thoughts on that scenario then?
  7. Anmeldung in two different cities

      If I understood you correctly, @PandaMunich, if OP chose not to register for the secondary residence in Würzburg, he would regardless be able to claim Doppelte Haushaltsführung. However, isn't the secondary registration in Würzburg a must? Else OP would be liable for tax fraud, evading the Zweitwohnsitzsteuer, if it were applicable? The only option I see is that in case someone is married with kids at the primary residence, then (s)he is not obliged to register the secondary residence, as Zweitwohnsitzsteuer doesn't apply - hence no concept of tax evasion. Any advantage of registering the secondary residence in this case?   Secondly, how would one file for an exemption for the Zweitwohnsitzsteuer (in case the secondary residence was primarily due to a new job, and wife and kid remained at the primary residence) - would it simply be made part of the tax return in the subsequent year? Or is there a special application that shall be filed?
  8. Contract in Finland, Living in Germany

      So living in Germany, and having a Finnish contract has no consequence to me at all? (remember I am not counting on having a German contract from the Finnish company). This then means that I will be making business trips to Finland to fulfil my full-time work contract in Finland, and that's all.   Based on the above information, I try to answer my own questions below,   -Can I live in Germany on my Niederlassungserlaubnis, and simply have a Finnish contract. I presume Finland would like to tax (plus pension, etc.) the salary at default. How to stop that so that I pay taxes, health, pension over here in Germany (which is a must as I am resident here)? Yes, just talk to both Finanzamts, so I pay tax only at one place - Legally is it OK to live in Germany, and work full-time for the Finnish company, without having a work permit of Finland? Yes - If I now go to apply for my German citizenship after the probation period of the Finnish job (with valid Finnish job contract), should I foresee any problems there in the context of above? ??
  9. Contract in Finland, Living in Germany

    I may have confused you. Its simple,   I will be living in Germany, and working in Finland (full-time). Practically this means making trips to Finland a couple of times a month, and the rest of the time working remotely from Germany, for the Finnish employer. Additionally, the company does have a permanent establishment in Germany as well, but I have doubts that they will be ready to give me a German contract because of the reasons mentioned in the previous posts. Hence, the following outstanding questions,   -Can I live in Germany on my Niederlassungserlaubnis, and simply have a Finnish contract. I presume Finland would like to tax (plus pension, etc.) the salary at default. How to stop that so that I pay taxes, health, pension over here in Germany (which is a must as I am resident here)? - Legally is it OK to live in Germany, and work full-time for the Finnish company, without having a work permit of Finland? - If I now go to apply for my German citizenship after the probation period of the Finnish job (with valid Finnish job contract), should I foresee any problems there in the context of above?
  10. Contract in Finland, Living in Germany

      1. You are of course right. The reason for my post is that they may not like to do it because of corporate reasons - we have the budget only in Findland, this department that department, etc. That's my concern.   2. Coming to think of it, even if this is the case, and I do get the German contract, I would virtually be working full-time for another country. Won't there be legal issues issues with that? I.e. German contract, but *always* deployed in Finland.
  11. Contract in Finland, Living in Germany

    Thanks. Still valid? In light of the edit I made above, i.e. the Finnish company does have a wide footprint (permanent establishments) in Germany as well.
  12. Hi friends,   I have a peculiar situation (or so I think), and somehow due to overthinking, I have lost the ability to even find the right keywords to my problem (any hints there would also be useful). Here goes,   I have been offered a permanent job in Finland, which I'd like to pursue via remote arrangement (plus at least 1-2 weeks on-site per month). On the other hand, I am a non-EU citizen and have been living in Germany for more than 7 years (7.1 to be precise) - with Niederlassungserlaubnis, and currently in probation of another job. My wish is not to leave Germany, at least before I get my German citizenship, and even if I do, I would like to return in a few years. The key questions which came to my mind are as follows,   - Can I live in Germany on my Niederlassungserlaubnis, and simply have a Finnish contract. I presume Finland would like to tax (plus pension, etc.) the salary at default. How to stop that so that I pay taxes, health, pension over here in Germany (which is a must as I am resident here)? - If I now go to apply for my German citizenship after the probation period of the Finnish job (with valid Finnish job contract), should I foresee any problems there in the context of above? - What other options are there to operationalize the above setting, i.e. living in Germany and work in Finland situation?   ---------------------------------------- Read below, only if you have time ---------------------------------------- Other thoughts in my mind, - Can there be a short term fix for above, e.g. I stay in Germany, work for Finland, for the next 9-12 months, and then anyway have my citizenship, so things are easier? - I cannot change the Niederlassungserlaubnis (DE) to Daueraufenthalt (EU) now since currently, I am on a probation period of another job, plus they would ask me to come back in a few months and apply for citizenship anyway.  - Get a German contract from Finland, and live happily ever after   If you have answers and/or recommendations, it'd be of great help.   Thank you so much!   EDIT: Finnish company does have a wide footprint in Germany as well, and is an EU-wide and international company.
  13. Bathroom renovation costs

    (I made a new topic out of my post earlier, as not much info can be found on this theme)   We are thinking of fully renovating our bathroom (~5 square meters, get everything old out, and install everything new). Does anyone have idea/experience of how much could it cost, ballpark? I am especially interested in knowing labour costs as one never knows what this covers (e.g. tiling, fixing, electricity? exhaust, etc.)   Also recommendations, pleasee ...   ps. The main fixtures, i.e. wash basin, tub, WC, mirror, etc. costs about 4k for a decent quality.
