  1. Finanzamt: moving to a new district

    Hi everyone. Hope everyone has been safe during these times.   I have a few questions under the topic of freelancing.   First of all, I just moved to a new district within Berlin and know I need to get a new Steuernummer. I'm registered both as a freiberufler and as a Gewerbe, so I have two numbers (don't know if it matters). What is the best way to go about doing that? Calling, submitting a new Fragenbogen?   Do I also have to get a new Gewerbeschein? Do I need to pay for it again?   Second, when I first registered as a freelancer back in 2018 I had written 3 different things on my Fragenbogen that all fell under the category of "freiberufler" (that was before I had the need for a Gewerbeschein). When I went to the Finanzamt the clerk asked me if I did all three and I said yes. She stamped the document and sent me on my way. However, when I got the letter with my number on the mail there was only one of my activities written down. I didn't think much of it because I had clearly stated that I do 3 different things. Now I'm a bit worried I should have gotten 2 other numbers, especially considering that during Corona most of my income is coming from one of the activities not stated on the letter. How should I proceed with this?   Finally, in terms of invoicing: what happens when I get a new Steuernummer? Do I have to go back and correct my old invoices?   Thanks!

  3. Change of address and the Staatsangehörigkeitsbehörde

      I know, I'm just wondering what do I have to do now that I will move to another Bezirk. Do I need to start the process over? Do I need to notify them and they will change my address?
  4. Hi all, I hope everyone is doing fine despite the circumstances.   I will move into a new apartment in May, but I have a few questions about how to proceed with the change of address.   Does anyone know if it's possible to do the Ummeldung in Berlin now? Do I need to wait until the pandemic is gone?   Here are the authorities and companies I know for a fact I have to notify: - Finanzamt (I'm a freelancer. I believe I need to get a new Steuernummer?) - My insurer (calling) - GEZ (online) - Phone company (online) - All other billing-related things, such as my bank, Apple Store, Amazon, etc.   And now the questions: - KSK: I applied to KSK in February and haven't heard from them (except for a letter stating they are looking at my application and will get back to me whenever they can) - Citizenship: I started a process of acquiring German citizenship in the Staatsangehörigkeitsbehörde from my Bezirk. I imagine this will change now, as I will move to a different district.   How should I proceed in the instances above?   Thanks for the insights!
