  1. Brexit: The fallout

    Contrary to popular belief, it is not all doom and gloom on the Brexit scene.   Here's why 1,800 businesses have set up a home in Leeds since the Brexit referendum.   "LEEDS ranks among the best places in Britain to start a post-EU referendum business, a study has shown.   Analysis by AskTraders found that more than 1,800 businesses have been registered in Leeds since the referendum in 2016, making it the sixth most popular place for start-ups to settle. Leeds was beaten to the top spot by London (46,000), with Birmingham second (3,938), Manchester third (3,709), Bristol fourth (2,558) and Liverpool fifth (1,878). Sheffield came in at 12th with 1,232, while Hull was 23rd with 424.   Steve Miley, senior market analyst at www.asktraders.com, said: “What we are seeing here is a significant increase in companies, most likely from Europe, setting up in the UK – in other words, European firms looking to get a foothold in the UK prior to the UK leaving the EU."   https://www.yorkshirepost.co.uk/business/here-s-why-1-800-businesses-have-set-up-a-home-in-leeds-since-the-brexit-referendum-1-10044899

  3. Legal status of sapling growing in front of window

    Have you done your research about when and if you can cut trees?   „Neben diesen regionalen Gesetzen gibt es noch lokale Vorschriften. Kommunale Baumschutzsatzungen beinhalten ortsspezifische Besonderheiten. So kann dort festgehalten sein, ab welchem Stammumfang ein Baum nicht gefällt werden darf oder welche Baumart generell in der Kommune oder im Landkreis geschützt ist. Es ist den Kommunen und Landkreisen jedoch selber überlassen, ob sie eine solche Verordnung für sich erlassen.   Die Vorschriften können in den unteren Naturschutzbehörden eingesehen werden, in der Regel sind dies die lokalen Naturschutzämter. In den Landesnaturschutzgesetzen sind mögliche Bußgelder festgeschrieben, die durch die Behörden vollstreckt werden können. In Thüringen können beispielsweise Bußgelder bis 50.000 Euro bei Verstößen gegen die Vorschriften geahndet werden.“   https://www.basenio.de/senioren-ratgeber/freizeit/baum-faellen-privatgrundstueck-genehmigung-558/    
  4. Neighbour complaining about height of bushes in our garden

          If they are blocking light to your neighbours flat, they may have a case.  
  5.   Are you renovating six days a week? Most tradesman finish work around 4.00 p.m. If your neighbours return home or are at home all day and must put up with the noise you are making until 7.00 p.m. six days a week, can’t you understand why they get angry?   „Sind in der Hausordnung keine Angaben zu finden, gelten die gesetzlichen Vorgaben. Demnach sind die Ruhezeiten mittags von 13 bis 15 Uhr und abends von 20 Uhr bis morgens um 7 Uhr. An Sonn- und Feiertagen gelten die Ruhezeiten ganztägig. Nachtruhe herrscht von 22 Uhr bis 6 Uhr. Um Ihre Nachbarn nicht zu stören, sollten Sie in dieser Zeit beispielsweise Musizieren und lautes Musikhören vermeiden und auch keine geräuschintensiven Haushaltsgeräte wie den Staubsauger oder die Waschmaschine anwerfen.“   https://www.gelbeseiten.de/ratgeber/hg/Laermbelaestigung-durch-Nachbarn-Wann-ist-es-Ruhestoerung  
  6. Need help with insurance/ALG

    You must register with the Agentur für Arbeit as soon as you realise your contract will be terminated. According to the regulations, three months before your contract ends or within three days of your contract ending if you didn’t know beforehand. Failure to do so means you will not receive any financial support for a certain period of time.       "Rückt das Ende des Arbeitsverhältnisses immer näher, droht ggf. die Arbeitslosigkeit. Damit es aber gar nicht erst so weit kommt, sollten Sie sich bei der Agentur für Arbeit arbeitssuchend melden. Die Frist für die Meldung liegt bei drei Monaten vor Beendigung des Arbeitsverhältnisses. Wann muss ich mich arbeitssuchend melden, wenn ich erst später Kenntnis von dem Ende erhalte? Dann müssen Sie sich innerhalb von drei Arbeitstagen arbeitssuchend melden (§ 38 Abs.1 SGB). Halten Sie sich nicht an diese Fristen, tritt eine Sperrzeit ein."   https://www.arbeitslosenselbsthilfe.org/arbeitslosengeld-1-antrag/   https://www.arbeitslosenselbsthilfe.org/arbeitssuchend-melden/   Even if you thought you would begin a new job within 30 days you should have registered with the Agentur für Arbeit for the time in between jobs.   You could register online and make an appointment to explain your situation that you have no income etc. but expect a lot of questions and paperwork.   I am not a lawyer.        
  7. Brexit: The fallout

    Boris Johnson will seek a Brexit extension from the EU if no withdrawal deal is reached by 19 October, government documents say.   The revelation in a Scottish court appears to be a direct contradiction of what the prime minister has said in public, insisting there would be no further delay and that the UK would leave the bloc on 31 October, with or without an agreement.   https://news.sky.com/story/pm-will-seek-brexit-extension-if-no-deal-agreed-by-19-october-11827149        
  8. Where to get basic information on Taxes

    Congratulations, I wish you lots of clients and every success for the future. I have learned such a lot from your posts.
  9. Brexit: The fallout

    I have often wondered if the Brexiters would have called for another referendum if the remainers had won. 
  10. Brexit: The fallout

    It has  a lot to do with history and our commenwealth ties. For many years, the Australian Goverment encouraged Brits to emigrate to Australia and even paid their fare there. Brits only had to pay 10 GBP themselves and so became known as 10 Pound Poms. The scheme ended in 1972.  
  11. Brexit: The fallout

    Hart aber Fair tonight at 8.15 p.m. on Tagesschau24 Guests will discuss Brexit, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump.   Guests are: Norbert Röttgen, CDU James Hawes, Britischer Schriftsteller Annette Dittert, Korrespondentin Christian Hacke, Politikwissenschaftler Ralph Freund, Vizepräsident "US Republicans Abroad Germany" Im Einzelgespräch: Teresa Holly, Studentin, die ein Auslandsjahr in den USA gemacht hat.  
  12. Brexit: The fallout

      Talk about clutching at straws.   I didn’t know that a vote was considered valid according to your age and hair colour. I find your post insulting and disrespectful to say the least. How has it been proved that staying in Europe is the better option? Not all negative things are due to Brexit. Some are due to bad judgement, mismanagement and poor Goverment funding.   17.4 million people voted for Brexit. It was a democratic vote, no rigging at the poll stations  so what is the problem?  Since when has the losing side a say in things? If your football team lost 1-0 do you have another game because there was only a difference of one goal?   Voting always takes place on a Thursday. It is a working day and people go to work, take the children to school, go shopping etc. so why did a large percent of the younger generation fail to vote?  Too lazy, too stupid, didn’t understand what it was all about, didn’t realise how important it is to vote or just couldn’t be bothered?     When and if Brexit happens, the sun will continue to shine and the world will not stop turning. The German government is doing its best to make life easy for us after Brexit, things could be a lot worse.            
  13. Brexit: The fallout

    If there’s no deal, UK nationals will not need visas for short stays elsewhere in the EU. You will be able to stay up to 90 days in another EU, EEA or EFTA country, within a 180 day period. You must retain evidence of travel (e.g. train and plane tickets), in case these are requested by national authorities. If you hold a residence permit from an EU, EEA or EFTA country, you will be able to transit through other EU, EEA or EFTA countries to reach your country of residence.   If there’s no deal, the German government has said that you should allow plenty of time when re-entering Germany and make sure that have you have documentation to hand that proves that you are a long-term resident, such as your residence permit, Meldebescheinigung, correspondence concerning social insurance contributions and work or rental contracts.   https://www.gov.uk/guidance/living-in-germany?utm_source=c7f67bf7-7bfb-47c4-866f-452ebcd83544&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=govuk-notifications&utm_content=immediate      
  14. Ex-UK military with pension beware on Brexit if now German citizen

    Well we now have 33 days to Brexit.   According to the latest Goverment info:      If there’s no deal, UK nationals will not need visas for short stays elsewhere in the EU. You will be able to stay up to 90 days in another EU, EEA or EFTA country, within a 180 day period. You must retain evidence of travel (e.g. train and plane tickets), in case these are requested by national authorities.

  15. Ex-UK military with pension beware on Brexit if now German citizen

    I find it strange that you applied for German citizenship because you thought it would make life easier not out of love for Germany and the German way of life.
