  1. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    Thanks for posting Danny. Very interesting. The Abschreibung for rented property was not on my radar. In fact for many properties 2% is not too far off the rental amount...   Actually I find it weird, unlike most other stuff properties increase value more often than not, yet the taxman gives you a tax discount as they were losing value. Never mind, life is too short to argue on the fairness of taxes...
  2. How long can I stay in Germany?

    I agree, I'm afraid. You campaigning for this? If you do, I will support it!
  3. How long can I stay in Germany?

    But you know this beforehand and can control it. If you want a specific person  to inherit your house and not to pay more rather than less tax, you marry the person. What's missing?
  4. How long can I stay in Germany?

      Fair enough. But throughout your life, before the accident or death, you are always in control, whom/when to make your family member. If you want another person to inherit your house or whatever, you simply marry this person. What's missing?
  5. How long can I stay in Germany?

    Agree.
  6. How long can I stay in Germany?

    Of course I agree "cohabitation" is not equivalent to marriage. But, in the countries where the concept of  "legal partnership" exist and is recognized by the state, what is the difference there between marriage and legal partnership? Why the heck should a country/state bother to establish the concept of "legal partnership" at all? I think this already exists, it's just called marriage.
  7. How long can I stay in Germany?

      Fine, but then you could say the concept of "legal partnership" is already present in Germany, it's called "marriage". Wrong?  
  8. How long can I stay in Germany?

    Fair enough. But then, what's the difference between married and partner? If the "partner status" is recognized legally in a society, why don't we simply call it marriage?

    Thanks Danny.   Anyone knows what is the FA view on which exact exchange rate to use?  
  10. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    Thanks Danny. Ok say I send an invoice to my customer in the UK in Jan 2020. He is due to pay in Feb 2020. He pays in march 2020. I report it to HMRC in April 2020. I move the pounds to Germany in may 2020. I report it to the German authority in June 2020. Or maybe I never even move these Pfunds to Germany, but I should of course still report the earnings.    There are at least six months in my example here. And 12 (of course) in your list. So six different exchange rates. Or 12, as you highlighted. Which of these 6, or 12, all different, should one use?
  11. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    Yes, but the one of which month?
  12. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    That's exactly why I think your explanation is wrong. When reporting income to the FA, I believe one must report income in exact amounts in EUR, "fairly accurate" would be ok for me, I guess also for you, but I don't think is accurate enough for the FA.   Plus, and here again is my original question, the rates you linked are every day different. The rate of which day should one use? 
  13. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    Thanks Danny. Maybe a typing mistake? I think the link you posted on Umsatzsteuer has nothing to do with the original question 2)
  14. UK rental income on German tax returns (post-Brexit)

    Thanks. Some questions.   1) Say you are due to receive UK rental income on 30.12.2021, but you end up receiving it on 01.01.2022. In which German tax year should this income count, in 2021 because that's when the income was theoretically due, or in 2022 because that's when it de-facto arrive?   2) How does the FA want you to convert from pounds to EUR?
