  1. Folks wait for einbürgerungszusicherung is killing me... Seems like lot of German buero-kracy is about being plan-los.   Any tips or funny comments appreciated.
  2. Hello all, I am currently assessing investing in Rürup plan as the stock market is down (thank god I did not do so in 2019). Couple of questions, I seek your advice (not official "financial advice" ) ... just your experiences: 1) Post retirement - at 62 - is the money paid out in one go or is it staggered for some years? 2) Are there any major downsides to paying a big lumpsum only for one year? Or at max, paying only once in a while? Some years are good for me and some not. So, I do not want a fixed cost sitting on a permanent basis. Would appreciate if you could please share your experiences. Cheers! Kay    
  3. Reinvest in property

    Folks, If I sell a property for profit and invest it again in another property - I do not have to pay capital gains tax.  Was wondering if selling stocks and investing in property is also treated the same? Appreciate any pointers.

  6. I am moving to Pilsen guys.   Well, you Italy just reduced their taxes for white collars. on 120k salary - you can get 105k in hand. Now, beat that. That too for 5 years.   Folks anyone for Milan here?
