    Why before March? If you do the tax return for 2018 yourself, you have until 31 July 2019 and with a tax consultant even until 28 February 2020 (or longer).

     

    On this website you can search for tax consultants in Hamburg who speak English (or your native language). 

    Thanks i was not sure from my office they told me that i should do the tax declaration before 2019 march.

  2. Hi,

    I´m working in a company and I also have a project as freiberufler with a small company in berlin. 

     

    Now i have to file for returns before March 2019. 

     

    Can someone please help me how to file for returns and whether an online consultant can help me. 

     

    I´m new in germany and since 1 year only. 

     

    Me and my husband both are working and we want to file the returns together.

     

    The only difference is that I have a full time job and a partime consultation project as freiberufler for which i´ve been receiving payments via invoices hence i need to file all the returns properly.

     

    Please advise who in hamburg could help me. 

     

    My knowledge of german is only 30%

    Hi there,
    i would like to know if the fingerprints taken by the Landesamt in Berlin is accepted by Canada RCMP to apply for criminal record check.
    i read by other post that the quality of the Fingerprints was low and it was not accepted by the RCMP.
    thank you !!

    hi im not sure if the Canadian authorities will accept this. You have to try it out. 

     

    There is no other way to do it here in germany. I found this solution after searching for 4 weeks. The police, the criminal depts none of them don't know of such a service. 

     

    It's better you do it in berlin and then submit to RCMP Canada. When you go to berlin take the RCMP form on which you . need fingerprints that would be better and also get another copy from the berlin authorities that way you will have fingerprints on two documents 1 issued by berlin 2 in the RCMP form itself. 

     

    They will be accepted as i had a sample rcmp document with me from an agent overseas as the fingerprints were quite clear. Nothing to worry. 

     

    Just go ahead and get it done u will only loose 40 euro if canadian authorities dont accept it. 

     

    All the best.

    A lot of Germans and others I know would just put the kid on the bus in the morning.   They'd not go with them or deal in "specific timings". Seriously.    They train them to go by bus alone right from when they start school.  Exactly because of the maths you set out.  4km one way is also not that unusual.   The other thing would be if there's any other kid(s) they cna buddy with.

     

    I have used said buses periodically.  It's not like much can really go wrong (and even if there is, they are full of people like me plus bus staff who know we have to look out for the little kids if there is a problem).  And when I walk down to the stop, quite small kids pass me on their own on scooters and bikes etc, and plenty of others are waiting for the tram etc.

    thanks i agree with you but we have just moved to germany and once the child is not with parents and out of school no one can guarantee the child's saftey. The school and schulhort authorities are amazing and take great care of the child but once the child is out of school premises risk factor is doubled. 

     

    if there is someone who is doing pick and drop service then i know that child is in safe hands and i dont mind paying more money as it's related to saftey. 

     

    anyways if you know anyone who does this kind of work then please let me know.

    What about Betreuung/Hort before school? Doesn't that start at 6 or 6:30? Or how early do you have to start work?

    Thanks for the advise i have chosen hort from 11:55 to 5:30 PM - I thought morning would be easy to drop by 7:30 AM but found out that the bus service near the schule has a 20 min gap so overall ill loose around 40 min if i drop him by bus and will eventually reach my office quite later. 

     

    I need to start office by 730 latest. 

     

    secondly to keep the child at 6:30 AM in the shulhort till 5:30 PM would take a heavy toll on the child. 

     

    if a pick and drop service is there its the most convenient without me worrying for my child to pick and drop him.

  6. Hi all, 

     

    I need help badly. 

     

    I need someone to pick and drop my child from his school at specific timings. 

     

    I was searching for child pickup services but couldn't find any on google in deutscheland. I found similar service in the US.  https://ridezum.com/ but wanted to know if there is someone who gives this service in germany. My area of residence is Norderstedt. 

     

    The total distance to and fro is 8 kms.

     

    I cannot manage it as i have to leave for office early and the bus services takes a long time from my house to the schule. 

     

    Appreciate if someone can help me on this.

    Hi all - i contacted hamburg welcome centre and they gave me the following reply 

     

    Guten Morgen,

     

    leider ist der Service in Hamburg nicht verfügbar. Bitte wenden Sie sich für die Beglaubigung Ihrer Fingerabdrücke an einen Notar.

     

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen

     

    AS PER THIS A NOTAR CAN DO IT - This is now taking a . turn - has anyone heard / known if any NOTAR can do it in hamburg for me.

    Given it's a federal republic, and the discussion here which is all at state level, I for one would be very surprised.  By the looks of that link, it might not even be legal for them to deliver the service for non-residents even if they wanted to (given it seems to specifically refer to a law relating to Berlin as the legal basis for the service).

    *SMDH*:wacko::o

     

    I'm afraid you are beyond the limited capacity of my patience to advise you.

     

    I did do my best to poiint out where @Headloq had explained how they managed to do it.

     

    I also wrote in what I thought was clear text above exactly where I thought you should (personally!!!) go to get a copy of your fingerprints taken.

     

    For reasons beyond my comprehension you appear to have disregarded both the experienced report by @Headloq and my intuitive suggestions, which were based on 34 years experience of dealing with German officialdom in form of Ausländerbehörden, Landesbehöhrden, Bundesbehöhrden, Zollbehöhrden, Polizeibehöhrden etc., etc., etc..

     

    Why you would even think it was a good idea to send an e-mail enquiry to the Landespolizei in Kiel (which was predestined to be responded to in exactly such a manner) is too far beyond the limits of my imagination to fathom.

     

    The person you wrote to could only do as every other German official would do when faced by any non-standard situation.

     

    If they could not find it in their rule book they could ask their supervisor or they could ask another official in a different state government department.

     

    And then they could, in all good conscious, say no!

     

    I'm not sure if it was yourself who introduced the word Führungszeugnis to your convo or them.

     

    If you did it was a counter-productive idea, but it probably makes no odds because the official who dealt with your pointless and hopeless e-mail enquiry in this case acquired their own confirming opinion backup from the Ausländeramt in Kiel.

     

    NB: NEITHER of those offices in Kiel could have helped you get your fingerprints taken by e-mail in any case.   

    ==================

    Please consider this my LAST attempt to suggest to you to whom you should apply.

     

    Unless you want to get involved in requesting official intervention at federal government ministerial level (for which support you would first need to provide an exhaustive record of legal grounds and bilateral treaty obligations from the country for which you need these fingerprints) your best hope remains as before.

     

    GO physically in person to the Kriminalpolizeidienststelle:
    KPSt. Norderstedt
    22850 Norderstedt
    Europaallee 24

     

    with your valid ID or Passport and a copy of the letter or form you have from the country in question which shows your need of an official copy of your fingerprints and without showing more than your ID or talking about your needs to the 1st person on the front desk ask to speak to an Erkennungsdiensttechniker wegen einen Daktyloskopisches Sicherung.

     

    Then try using your own personal charm to overcome that person's instinctive resistance to do anything they've never had to do before. 

     

    ETA: On NO account mention or show them that e-mail convo with the Landespolizei in Kiel or they'll simply show you out the door faster than you can think!!

    Hi - i went to the polizie at KPSt. Norderstedt
    22850 Norderstedt
    Europaallee 24 

     

    The officer told me to go to Rathausalle and look for einwohnermeldeamt and ask there. Polize doesnt have any information on fingerprints.

     

    To my surprise i found something on the berlin website.

     

    https://service.berlin.de/dienstleistung/320310/

     

    I took an appointment for 13th August just not to miss the date. But am is this the correct link and will they do it for a resident of Schelswig Holstein?

     

    I'm sure there should be something like this for hamburg residents.

     

    PLEASE HELP ME NOW

  11. I'm still stuck here. I had applied to the following place via email. 

     

    Landespolizeiamt

     
    Mühlenweg 166
    24116 Kiel
    Telefon: 0431 160-0
    Fax: 0431 160-60109
     
    They gave me the following response. 
     

    Hallo,

    ich habe ihr Problem grundsätzlich verstanden, aber die Polizei macht so etwas nicht! Wir nehmen keine Fingerabdrücke von Personen für Führungszeugnisse!

    Ich habe mit dem Ausländeramt in Kiel telefoniert. Auch dort kennt man Führungszeugnisse mit Fingerabdrücken nicht. Es tut mir wirklich leid, aber ich kann ihnen nicht helfen!

     

     

    Mit freundlichem Gruß

     

    Now to whom should i apply for the fingerprints?

    Right ... problem resolved.

     

    I went to the Polizeiinspektion Schweinfurt in Mainberger Straße (in SW, naturally...) and had the good luck to run into a half-German half-American Polizisten at the desk. I explained the problem to her, and she rolled her eyes saying "Just how stupid is that?" (I paraphrase). The first suggestion was that I wander off to one or the other Behörde in SW and try there, at which point an incoming call distracted her. Once that call ended, the Polizisten disappeared for a minute or two, and the came back saying "The patient are rewarded - one of the colleagues will be down in a moment to help you!".


    Said colleague from the KriPo came down and could not have been more helpful. Prints done, forms stamped - happy camper here!

     

    As a parting comment, he added that this only really happens 2 or 3 times a year, and should I need this again, to either come down and ask for a colleague in the KriPo, or try a really, really small Dienststelle (one horse Dorflein kinda place) as they tend to do manual prints still. Not a lot any more, but "there are enough - you will find one".  

     

    This was a total contrast to the last time I tried this (early 2017 for a different set of prints!).

    You would need to apply to the state CID (criminal investigation division) or Landeskriminalpolizei of the federal state you are registered in. Since very few people in Germany ever have need of such a document applications are a very rare occurrence so in most states there is no formal procedure.

     

     

    In any other state than Schleswig-Holstein the Polizeipräsidium in whose jurisidiction you were registered would indeed be the place to go. However for historical political reasons you won't find a Polizeipräsidium in S-H. Their equivalents are called Polizeidirektion/en (PD) and there are 8 of those in S-H. The PD which has responsibility for Norderstedt is located in Bad Segeberg.

     

     

    The lady is partially correct insofar as certain staff at the Rathaus can accept applications for a certificate of good conduct (Polizeilichesführungszeugnus) albeit they cannot give you such a certificate since those are issued from a central office of the federal Ministry of Justice locted in Bonn and may only be sent by recorded postal mail to the applicants registered address.

     

    Neither anyone at the Rathaus nor at the central office responsible for issuing Polizeiführungzeugnisse have anything to do with fingerprints.

     

    Life would be easier on you, and the staff of your Rathaus, in such circumstances if you took a few minutes first to learn at least the German equivalents of the few key words you needed to discuss.

     

    Fingerprint certification = Daktyloskopische bescheinigung.

     

     

     

    Then you obviously missed the post at the top of the page you posted in on that thread where @Headloq explained on 4 Dec 2017 exactly how they did just that in another city.

     

    ^^See?

     

    And you seem to have also missed the fact that just 8 days before you posted @tfernandes had posted from Norderstedt about the same issue as you.

    ^^There!

     

     

    In this case there's not really any point in wasting time making someone who can't help you understand what you need.

     

     

    I sincerely hope you are wrong there because the number of people on TT who have ever needed such a document are likely to be extremely few and I daresay many of those who did so in order to obtain a visa for another country are no longer active members.

     

    ======================

    Here's a few pointers which may be of use to you now and in future.

     

    Every organisation of any significance in Germany whether private or public will have one or more (for each department) organizational chart on its website. These are called an Organigramm and can usually be found in dropdown menus, sitemaps or via the site search. These are useful in determining which section of which department (in public entities often called Dezernat and Abteilung) is charged with which task/s.

     

    According to the Organigramm Landeskriminalpolizei Schleswig-Holstein the subjects of fingerprint evaluation and/or analysis fall within the scope of Abteilung 4 Kriminal Technisches Institute and their subsidiary Dezernat 44 Erkennungsdienst SG441 Daktyloskopisches Auswertung.

     

    I suggest you write down or take note of the italicised words I have mentioned in the above text, in particular in the last paragraph.

     

    Those key words are likely to prove useful to you because whether you have to eventually go to the PD Bad Segeberg or the KPSt Norderstedt either of them should have staff who are allocated to those Abteilung/Dezernat numbers and they would be the people who have the equipment and professional competence to deal with certification of fingerprints.

    =======================

    In future it would be appreciated by those of us who do care to try and help by answering such questions if you would kindly refrain from posting the same question on multiple threads.

     

    Such behaviour is very irritating because, apart from causing frustration and confusion to those who search for similar themes in future, it invariably happens that some TTer (like me) is halfway through researching or writing a detailed answer when, temporarily distracted by real life events, they return to find the enquiry has spread over 2 or 3 other threads.

     

    Faced with the question, 'Where the heck should I respond now?' I usually quit for 24 - 48 hours to wait and see if anyone else takes it on. Sometimes, having already invested as much time as I felt reasonable, I am just so fed up with such impatient behaviour I don't bother to respond to the poster. at. all. ever. again.

     

    Thank you in anticipation of your future cooperation.

    Update - I've bumped this to 'Germany - visas & permits' to appeal to a broader Toytown audience. I apologize in advance to any of our slighly more detail oriented Toytowners if it isn't exactly the correct category. Anyway, as mentioned above, I need to be fingerprinted in Germany to have a criminal record background check done in my country of origin, Canada to aquire a work permit abroad. As I understand it Americans and Aussies require this as well for similar background checks. I tried going to the Polizeipräsident in Berlin at the Platz der Luftbrücke on Friday and they said they had no idea about that, but directed me to a nearby Polizeiwache. The police officer on duty told me that the police in Germany cannot and will not do fingerprinting due to privacy concerns. I tried my best to explain why I needed it and he told me I would need to go out and commit a crime and then come back in order to be fingerprinted (yes, he really suggested that). I explained that would automatically defeat the purpose as it is for a work visa. The conversation went in circles for about 10 minutes before he became a little agitated and told me that he couldn't give every Canadian or Australian a stamp on the hand to fulfill the needs of their foreign governments. At that point I thanked him for his time and left, unsure what to do now.

     

    On a similar Munich thread, someone had mentioned something about going to a police station. I am therefore not sure if 1) he knew what he was talking about or 2) just covering for his lack of knowledge and trying to get rid of me. I also plan on getting in touch with the Canadian embassy next week, although according to the web, they don't offer these services. If anyone has any pointers or experience with getting your fingerprints 'officially' taken here, that would be fantastic.

    I just got my fingerprints taken for a Canadian criminal records check at the place recommended to me by the Canadian embassy. It is the Landesamt für Bürger- und Ordnungsangelegenheiten at Friedrichstr 219, 10958 Berlin. I was told to go to Herr Krause in room 208, 2 OG. The building is very confusing and there's no central information desk to tell you where to go, but Herr Krause's office is on the side of the building that has fewer people sitting in the waiting area. I took a green waiting number card (not blue) and a friendly worker helped me look for Krause, who wasn't there that day, but found a replacement lady to do the fingerprinting. You need to bring your passport and it costs 15€, but they've got the fingerprinting setup there and it's pretty quick. Hopefully it'll satisfy the criteria and it'll all work out!

     

    The opening times for the Amt are:

    Mon: 8-15

    Tues: 11-18

    Thurs: 11-18

    Fri: 8-13

     

    And just in case it isn't written anywhere else on here, if one needs a German Führungszeugnis, I got one at my local Rathaus, it was very easy to do and it came in the post a week later.

    Hi i am searching the same - Official document where my finger prints are - can it all be combined with a police clearance certificate / Certificate of good conduct or are they two separate things?

    Basically you go to your Rathaus/Bürgeramt. You have to tell them why you want it (I believe there are two types which cost different amounts).

  17. Hi,

     

    I need to submit my fingerprints as a part of a visa application. Hence i need a document authorized from the country of my residence (Germany in this case as I'm living in Germany) and get it stamped and signed officially so that I can send it ahead for the visa process.

     

    Please let me know from where I could apply for this document and the procedure. I had heard that I need to approach the Polizeipräsidium.

    I'm not sure but need assistance on this.

     

    Does the Polizeipräsidium. mean Polizie (Local police station in my town?) or its another place in Schelswig Holestein?

     

    I approached Rathaus - But they told me they can give me a certificate of good conduct 13 euros will be the charge - not sure if they do fingerprints - The lady cannot understand english so i'm stuck.

  22. Hello all, 

     

    I have recently moved to hamburg. I am working. My husband is a freelancer. I have a child. 

     

    In my case i want to buy a house from the start as the installments come upto the same rent amount that i will pay. 

     

    I have seen many houses on the immobilien websites but they don't help in financing. They told me to go to the bank and check. 

     

    Need advise from where to start. Will banks give me a loan for 20 - 30 years. What is the rate of interest the banks charge on housing loans. 

     

    Here good houses are coming upto 450,000 house - basic house I dont want an apartment or joint house as it makes no sense. 

     

    Your inputs would be appreciated if anyone has purchased a house on-board.
