  1. Irish Citizenship applications here in Germany

      From what you have posted here and on other threads though one could have every reason to suspect that Landkreis Havelland is a contender for least constructive / most tiresome ABH in Germany.
  2. Buying first car up to 7000€

    Have you also considered how frequently you will run the car in the future when considering a previously little run car.   Than can be a drag in Berlin if you need to use pubic transport for work purposes. I ended up driving to work once a week to keep things ticking over even though it took much longer.
  3. Blue card application without mietvertrag (rental contract)

    The rental contract needs to be shown as the ABH would like to see how much your rent is. 
  4. Stone Brewing in Alt Mariendorf, Berlin

      Berliner Kindl.   Nuff said
  5. Notre Dame is on fire

      It is already being reported that such donations will be 90% tax deductible.   https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6925139/Friend-billionaire-pledged-100m-Notre-Dame-says-donations-90-tax-deductible.html   (I am not a tax specialist nor do I play one on TV.)  
  6. S1 Health Insurance and Brexit Questions

      Indeed. And also thanks again to @john g. for confirming that there is no good answer now  for these S1 questions. Healthcare is not a trivial matter.
  7. S1 Health Insurance and Brexit Questions

      Thank you 
  8. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      True but some people are not natural test takers. I am impressed that someone has taken the time to show their way of preparing. Perhaps it is of help for other TT members.   Better to be overly conscientious I think rather than to swing the other way and simply admit defeat.  
  9. S1 Health Insurance and Brexit Questions

      There is poster @rodisi who has been asking similar questions regarding the S1 form and AOK from the perspective of a pensioner. The worse case outcome hard brexit seemed to be that AOK would have to take him on but he would need to pay the contributions himself.   For those still working and paying into to  UK National Insurance with a S1 cover in Germany I don't think we are any further forward.   I would not discount that they expect you to go back to the UK for treatment.    
  10. Higher Elterngeld by switching tax classes

    I searched for tax class 3 above and found the answer to your question.
  11. Are people with tattoos stupid?

      The opening poster would probably be of the opinion that you are too stupid for regrets.   I question the intelligence of starting such a derogatory thread. 
  12. What would be a good title for David Cameron memoirs

      What has this to do with David Cameron?   Is it a compliment?
  13. Ageism and sexism in Germany

      I am not a resident IT professional but it is clear to me that the SAP is important to Berlin - Brandenburg.    Hasso Plattner is originally from Berlin. He has invested heavily in the Hasso Plattner Research Institute in Babelsberg and also made a major contribution to the Museum Barberini in Potsdam loaning his very impressive art collection.   The Hasso Plattner Institute is well networked into the research and innovation digital landscape in Berlin. Big Data is where Berlin wishes to lead.   They also have an SAP office. 
  14. Finding an apartment in Leipzig

      There is also the question of self identity. I have many colleagues from the former DDR who consider themselves to be East German.    
  15. Ageism and sexism in Germany

      If so, then the advice to get 2 years experience over a MSc degree is not a good career move. To move beyond a certain point on a government pay scale you need a MSc degree.    This point is also valid for industry when formal German accreditation processes need to be observed. The post holder will often need an appropriate MSc degree to proceed to more regulatory responsibility.
